A book! An honest-to-gosh book!
The Pocket Muse, Monica Wood
Photos, essays about the writing life and getting it done, quotes, random thoughts, and prompts. This kind of thing could be a sappy soup, but I’ve found it to be a great testament to noticing: what you have available to you is enough, so do the work. The prompts and photos and page layouts are great for inspiration now, and a couple of the essays—well, I’ve accosted creative friends to read aloud to them and share the bounteous wisdom.
Here’s a prompt:
Almost any situation includes insiders and outsiders. Most human beings, no matter what their stations, consider themselves outsiders.
Write about being an insider.
You can buy it at Powell’s Books.
