I just added a short review of Hal Zina Bennett’s Write Starts to the blog on my Amazon Author Page at

The small book’s subtitle gives you an idea of its content:  Prompts, Quotes, and Exercises to Jumpstart Your Creativity.

What I enjoyed most about the book were the glimpses into a veteran writer’s life, interspersed with the gentle suggestions of starting points for stuck writers. If you’re a fan of writing prompts, this is a good resource, though in a slightly different format than you may be accustomed to.

He’s a true writers’ writer.
