There are 366 writing prompts here – one for each day of the year in
2020. Some are short and pithy, others are inspired by obscure days e.g.
16 February Do a Grouch a Favour Day, and some go into more detail on
an aspect of writing craft. There are series that go over a number of
days, e.g. creative writing in other languages, working with postcards,
writing for children and writing historical fiction. A few prompts are
about works in progress and several give you the choice of working with a
text you have already created, creating something new or even editing a
completed piece of work. There are also invitations to read. But every
prompt gives you the opportunity to write something as well.
These prompts were put together by writers published by the Bridge House, CafeLit and Chapeltown imprints, and their friends.
The last thing most writers want to do is spend a lot of time on
marketing. Yet books don't sell themselves by magic, no matter how good
they are. Publishers do what they can but time and money is limited, and
inevitably they have to move on to the next project. If you can adapt a
few useful routines, especially ones you find palatable and fun, you'll
hardly notice you're doing it. There are heaps of useful suggestions
here and handy check lists to keep you on track.
