This review is from: The Pocket Muse: Ideas and Inspiration for Writing (Paperback)
There are a lot of creative writing manuals available, and many teach the technicalities of grammar, style or theme, and while a lot of these do include exercises designed to get the creative juices going, few succeed as well as this book. Full of photographs to kickstart the imagination, as well as inspirational anecdotes, story ideas or 'fill in the blank' exercises, it's possible to follow them chronologically, as part of a homespun writing course, or you can dip in and out, opening the book at random and using the suggestion or photo as a starting point for that day's work. I think all writers, both experienced and otherwise, should own this book.
