A really good source for ideas when I'm having trouble getting started writing. The author provides a short topic for each day of the year; she also provides writing tips. ( )

Reeves has put together a book with a lot of good prompts - they are short and not overly specific, and she's given one for every day of the year. Interspersed with these are bits of advice on finding time to write, being in and running writers' groups, avoiding writers' block (or getting stuck, as you like), and on generating new material. Some of the suggestions stray widely into the bizarre, such as when she suggests you walk around naked in your backyard; others are much more practical, such as keeping a notebook with you at all times and making notes of others' writing that particularly strikes you.

Reeves advocates something called "writing practice" where every day you spend time writing freely and messily without editing or revising. This generates a body of material that can be mined and refined for stories, novels, essays, and the like. She places particular emphasis on silencing your inner critic and editor during these sessions, and saving those functions for later on. One notes, however, that the "later on" didn't quite occur with some of the passages in this book - there are some rather glaring typos, misused words, and odd sentence fragments that feel accidental rather than deliberate. It's distracting, especially in a book on writing.

My main criticism of this book is that it takes on a familiar, touchy-feely vibe, not only with the nakedness, but also with its emphasis on how emotional writing is supposed to be and how in touch with one's feelings one ought to become. Reeves doesn't do a good job of expressing these things in a fresh way, and she's repetitive. She's also sort of the Martha Stewart of writing, with baskets of postcards and cut-up lists of sentences and words printed on card stock and whatnot. If you're trying to hold down a day job while you're writing, a significant portion of her advice is maybe not going to be so useful to you.

Overall, though, it's a good resource, and I've found her prompts a lot more helpful than those in other, similar books - many have prompts that are either super-specific, totally ridiculous, or both, locking you into a factual scenario rather than opening up possibilities. Reeves's don't do that. That alone probably makes the book worth the price. ( )

Motto

"The writer, perhaps more than any of his fellow artists, has access to the human subconscious. His words sink deep, shaping dreams, easing the pain of loneliness, banishing incantations and omens, keeping alive the memories of the race, providing intimations of immorality, nourishing great anticipations, sharpening the instinct for justice, and imparting respect for the fragility of life.  These functions are essential for human evolution. Without them, civilization becomes brittle and breaks easily. Society must be measured, therefore, not just by its display of power but by its attention to the conditions of creativity and its acceptance of human sovereignty as the highest value." -Normin Cousins
