4.0 out of 5 stars 1,000 Creative Writing Prompts for Holidays 27 Feb 2014
By Merissa

I received this book free from StoryCartel in exchange for a fair and honest review.

As anyone who has ever written a story will tell you, sometimes you get stuck and just can't think of where to go and what to write next. This book will help if the block is caused by something to do with a holiday. There are 1,000 prompts in here (as the title says) and cover everything from Ramadan to Earth Day. But not only will this book give you a prompt but it is also full of snippets of information from around the world including traditions and folklore. This is an excellent resource not just for the holidays but for every day. Recommended for writers of all ages.

This book has a lot to offer; not only does it provide some interesting prompts to get developing writers going but the prompts themselves contain a lot of interesting information about American cultural and religious holidays. This is not to say that it's readership is in any way limited to the USA, it's global, anyone who is interested in people and how their lives and those of others are effected by the 'Holidays' that their culture embraces will gain a lot of in-site and opportunity to get their creativity flowing. For example the section on Christmas prompted me to free-write about how I celebrated this holiday as a child, about my Czech upbringing and the festivities we took part in, in the then communist Czechoslovakia.

Bryan Cohen's inclusiveness of different religions and customs is enhanced by the empathy he elicits and encourages in the readers of this book, guiding the budding writer to imagine what emotions people in different situation might be experiencing. For example, in the section on Veterans Day he ask readers/writers to imagine what it would be like and how we would 'cope with being so far from home'as this is something anyone in the military experiences. The ability to put yourself into some one else shoes is surely the basis of learning to write believable characters and Bryan's prompts help with this.

1,000 Creative Writing Prompts for Holidays, is very empathetic and thought provoking and would not only be the prefect tool to encourage young and developing writers of school going age, but even adults, as I have, will gain form using this book of prompts to enhance their creativity and writing.

This guide is packed as full as it promises of excellent prompts focused around holidays. It begins with the really encouraging introduction as a motivating starting point for writers:
"When you use a memory or an emotion to wrote from, it helps you to feel like you aren't starting from scratch. There are thousands of stories already in your brain and many of these prompts are attempts to jog your memory and to use your brain for all its worth...If you say over and over again that you aren't qualified enough to be a writer...you will fulfil your own (kind of boring) prophecy". And of course the reverse is also true.

This book would be an excellent teacher's companion for helping children and young adults think about the holidays they participate in and those that their school mates from different cultures enjoy, as well as stimulate thinking about history, geography and society alongside politics in an empathetic manner. The questions are really geared towards children rather than adults and it is based around American holidays, most of which as a Brit I am not personally familiar, but it was interesting to see an approachable read that could help kids with essay writing and some creative writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great prompts and worth getting a copy 13 Dec 2012

This book promises 1000 prompts to help creativity with creative writing and it delivers on that as well as giving a bit more to boot.

From the friendly and warm introduction until the last prompt, this book gives plenty of variation in ideas and jumping off points to get past the dreaded writers block.
I found that the tips that Bryan gives in the introduction section gave a useful insight into how he writes but also offers assurance and a boost in confidence to those of us who may not be used to writing on a regular basis. He even offers suggestions on how to incorporate writing into your daily routine and I thought that this was a nice touch and added to the personality of the book and the way in which it was written.

The book is based around the US holidays and also includes some religious holidays which means they may not be celebrated by everyone who reads the book, however the prompts are written in such a way that this does not really matter because they are so easily adapted to any kind of celebration or situation. A nice touch to the prompts is that there is a small sentence or so explaining why the holiday is celebrated and what some of the important symbolism based around the holiday means. This allows the reader to look at the reason and the emotion and adapt the prompt to whatever situation they feel fits.

The other thing I like about this book is that it guides you into looking at personal experiences and memories and utilise them within your writing. This resulted in my own writing having a lot more depth, personality and also meant the reader could easily identify with what they are reading.

I recommend this book to anyone who has suffered from the dreaded writers block and I will most definitely be looking at the other books that Bryan has produced for even more inspiration for my own work.
