I offered this gift to my writing group when we wrote together last October. We were each responsible for leading a prompt workshop – and this was the hit of the night!
Jamie Cat Callan, a creative writing teacher, created this amazing kit which includes a booklet filled with exercises and instructions that focus on a right-brained approach to writing and other forms of creativity. Sixty exercise popsicle sticks – titled First Sentences, Non Sequiturs, and Last Straws – will jump start any blocked writer. Additionally there are 60 cards to bring forth creative descriptions, and four spinner cards to create exploration of interesting plot foci.
On a scale of 1-10, I would rate this a solid 10. When I am stumped – and without a light at the end of the tunnel – this is my go-to activity.
