Overview

Almost every writer has a pathological predisposition to procrastination and often believe there is a magical answer to the question ‘where do you get your ideas?’.

Well now, whether you write Twitfic, Microfiction, Flash Fiction, Short Short Stories, Short Stories, Novelettes, Novellas, Novels or Scripts you can tell everyone that you get your ideas here.

This is a prompts book. Oh yes. But it's a prompts book with a BIG difference. The prompts in this book aren't the usual, run-of-the-mill, mind numbingly boring prompts you usually get.

Oh, no. Not here.

And this is not the sort of book that's just going to give you a prompt and expect you to know what to do with it. No matter what form your writing takes, this book will show you an easy way to get the ideas out of your brain and transformed into stories.

How? Well that's the easy part - firstly there's Mr Maxwell's Spectacular Story Suggester.

A simple method of taking whichever prompt you choose and getting it straight into the easiest possible form so you can get to the important part - writing the story.

There is, of course, more. The author has taken a prompt and written a Flash Fiction story from it and then explained exactly how he did it.

Then Adrian Graham, a prolific microfiction author whose ebooks have been downloaded over 120 thousand times has written some exquisite stories and explained how to create micro-magic from the prompts

Next Rosalind Wyllie, a tremendous playwright whose plays have been performed up and down the country by fine companies of players (including the RSC) has penned a short script and taken time from her busy schedule to describe how she weaved her magic.

And last but by no means least the fantastic Y.A. author Mr C.G. Allan has written a children's short story and then explained just how it went from prompt to print.

By the time you've inhaled this book you mind will be an overflowing well of wonderful ideas and even better - you'll know what to do with them.

Meet the Author

Adam lives a semi-misanthropic life beside the seaside in Northumberland in the UK. He spends most of his days in the attic and sometimes throws pebbles at passers-by. His first book, Dial M for Monkey was published in 2006 and was a cult success on both sides of the Atlantic.

The time Adam doesn't spend writing is spent building websites including his own www.adammaxwell.com where you can also see more of his short stories, flash fiction and listen to his award winning podcast.

If you keep coming back here and visiting his website he may consider a cessassion of pebble-throwing but if you wave at him he will not wave back.
