PROMPT ME by Robin Woods is the perfect workbook to jump start your creativity.

PromptMeWhether you are a seasoned writer or you’re simply a creative thinker and wish to exercise your writing chops, Robin Woods’ PROMPT ME workbook has countless prompts and exercises to fuel your imagination. I’ll even add that, if you’re an English teacher and you use bell work to get your students to focus, you may want to add this workbook to your repertoire of writing exercises.

The prompts range from photographs to one-liners and cater to all genres and POVs. First and third person prompts include gems like: “No matter how hard I tried, my feet couldn’t find purchase. Panic set in and my palms began to sweat …” and “When they tore down the wall, they discovered …”.

The booklet is organized so that you could just jump right into any section or simply start from page one. Journaling pages to explore your thoughts are sprinkled between the various prompts-all categorized-making it super easy to bounce around as your creative whims carry you.

There’s even a section that lets you do writing sprints with predetermined dialogue prompts. Robin Woods also includes lists of phrases that are easy to add into a paragraph to make your writing pop, like this alliterative one: “slick surface”.

Prompt Me isn’t just loaded with different types of prompts, it also includes several fill-in-the-blank charts for defining your characters far beyond hair and eye color. Some of the exercises have multiple choices that cater to just about any type of creative writing from Sci-Fi to Romance. And there’s also a list of writing prompt questions that explore self-discovery, roll play, and listing, as well as Haiku poetry exercises—a goldmine of personal journaling/bell work prompts.

Basically, this booklet has it all!

If you’re not familiar with Robin Woods, take at look at her website. She’s the author of several young adult novels, including The Watchers Series. Her site boasts a great writer’s tools section (just like the reference section in the back of this workbook) which is an excellent go-to for tips.

You can buy PROMPT ME on Amazon for $9.95 right now, and the best part is it ships through Prime, so you can start using your new workbook the day after tomorrow!
