Praise For…

"Tarn Wilson's thoughts on how to think like a writer are embedded in her book's hundreds of playful and well-organized prompts. Writers write, regularly, and the first step is to have fun inventing. As the author knows, the pleasure of pen to paper just for the sake of it for five, or if one likes more, minutes a day inspires anyone longing to start or restart writing as well as teachers itching to encourage their students. Itching—write a story about a time you itched. Wilson's prompts help you add in your own. Get the book and write, write, write!" —Sheila Bender, author of A New Theology: Turning to Poetry in a Time of Grief and Since Then: Poems and Short Prose
