9 Writing Prompts Books to Jumpstart your Creative Juices
Good writing takes practice.
Writing prompts are like the exercises a runner performs other than the actual running. Because being a good runner also involves taking care of the physique as a whole.
Same goes for writing. Your next novel / screenplay / piece shouldn’t be the only thing you ever write. I believe that creativity is a muscle and you should keep it strong. Buying books for writing prompts will be like equipping your personal ‘gym’.
