5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Helpful Book I have Read in a Long Time 30 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was given this book for free and politely asked if I would review it in return. Bryan, I am delighted to do so. As an avid reader and a very amateur writer who simply enjoys writing short stories, articles on topics of the day, poetry, private thoughts and so on; this book was such a pleasure to read. For me personally I found it inspirational. It excited me! I try to write something daily, be it just a few sentences or an actual short story et al and I confess there are times I just sit and look at a blank page and think "what now?" I want to write but nothing is jumping into my mind. This wonderful little book has lots of "what if?" situations covering many subjects under the umbrella term of the four seasons. The open-ended questions approach generates many situations to gain ideas from no matter what type of writing anyone may be tackling. Just to give you an idea of how impressed I am I have purchased two more of your books Bryan and am eagerly anticipating lots more great ideas and much inspiration to encourage me to keep at it. Thank you and good luck.

4.0 out of 5 stars Four Seasons of Creative Writing 3 Mar 2014
By Merissa
Format:Kindle Edition
I can happily recommend this book to anyone who writes - whether it is the child at school writing short stories, or the published author. There is something in here for everyone. The book is broken down into the four seasons but then within that you have different headings like nature, science, people. Everything you could wish for.

With this book in your library, your creativity will know no bounds. Loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique approach to writing prompts 21 Jan 2014
By Laura Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
With its unique approach to writer's block, Four Seasons of Creative Writing categorizes each of its prompts by season, rather than by subject.

Under each season you'll find straightforward prompts asking you to ponder what might happen because of the weather, as well as facts and trivia about events that have taken place during each season. (For example, there are lots of winter festivals dedicated to celebrating ice and snow mentioned.) You'll also find literary prompts that tie into the seasonal theme, from the "summer of youth" to the "winter of our discontent."

While I was expecting prompts more along the lines of a visualization exercise or lists of items for the writer to include in their piece, this approach with open-ended questions offers something a little different. As some other reviewers have suggested, many of the prompts are aimed at school-age writers, but even older writers looking to break out of their comfort zones can benefit from thinking seasonally for a change.

Recommended for anyone struggling with a blank page, in need of some spring, summer, winter or fall motivation to get that pen moving.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting set of writing prompts! 31 Jan 2014
By Kelly Boyer Sagert - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I like how the author has arranged the prompts by season; I've never seen it done that way before. I also like how the prompts are arranged in categories within these seasons. This book seems perfect for use at a writer's conference to get the participants warmed up and ready to talk about writing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great prompts for any time of writers block 16 Jan 2014
By J. C. Manthorpe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book free in return for a review.
This is a great book for getting your creative juices rolling. Its give a list of different questions to ponder over in different categories,
like for instance in the Nature, Activities and Events section, there are questions for weather, nature sports, events and then a mixed bag of questions. There many other categories too many to list here.

I gave the book 4 stars since the formatting is not good and it looks like it was thrown together in a hurry, but that should not deter you from buying the book since its very readable and has a many great information to help you overcome any writers block.

I personally will be referring to this book whenever I need inspiration or a boost of creativity in my writing, and as a new writer I am sure that will be often. I think well seasoned and experienced writers would also benefit from just browsing the questions as you will no doubt get inspired to write a good blog post or a start of a paragraph of a book etc

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for Jr. High & High School 14 Jan 2014
By Outmybackdoor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Caveat: I'm reviewing this book after receiving an advance copy for free.

This would be a fantastic book for an instructor to use with a variety of classes, not just English Comp. I spent 26 years in the field of education, and I wrote instructor materials for book companies for about 10 years. So I feel competent to evaluate Cohen's book from that perspective, as well as from that of a writer.

The prompts in this little book are well written. You might not realize just how important that is, but I can tell you firsthand that it is extremely important to provide your students materials without grammatical or syntax errors! We don't want to give examples of bad behavior, but we sure don't want to give examples of poor writing. There is enough of that "out there" today already, with the freedom we now have to publish anything and everything. I'm not here to debate that issue, but to assert that if you have any concerns about something not put out by a major publishing house, I'm here to allay those fears. This is a GOOD BOOK.

As a writer, I'm always happy to find new books and/or lists of prompts, not so much for writer's block, but more for getting myself to go in new and challenging directions. Writing out of my comfort zone, I call it. I don't see myself referring to Cohen's prompts very often. Too many of them are aimed at students.

Just because I won't be using them doesn't mean they aren't useful. For younger writers, brand new writers trying to gain self-confidence, I think this is a very worthwhile book. If I were an English teacher, I know I would use it regularly. Well done, Mr. Cohen.
