Good writing begins with WRITING-anything! JUST WRITE, GODAMMIT! Inside these books are 388 wildly creative, ridiculously fun ideas and prompts to get you going. Seriously, if these workbooks don't get you going, then you need to forget about writing and go open a dry-cleaning franchise. --Mary Roach bestselling author of Stiff, Spook, Bonk, and Grunt, among others
