The Writer’s Block

This is a great little book if you are trying to exercise your creativity or just come up with some ideas for a story. I have found that just flipping to a random page often reminds me of past ideas I’ve had or helps me create new connections between subjects that I had not thought of before. It’s most valuable for those focused on writing fiction, but is a tool all writers can use.


The only complaint I have is that it does not hold up well long term. I’ve had mine about 5 years, and its shape (literally a cube) does not hold up well after you use it a few times.



Below are 7 ideas that I flipped to randomly . . . out of the 786 available.


1. Write about a near-death experience


2. Deadline


3. Write a love story set in cyberspace.


4. Prophecy


5. If you could script the plot for the dream you will have tonight, what will it be?


6. Tell a story that centers around a recipe.


7. Write about your worst habit.
