As older adults, it's a great tool for memoir writing
My son, who is a college student, loved this gift.
Perfect gift for the aspiring writer in the family! My niece loved it... Wants to be a writer and does debate - should be great for both. Did a "theme" gift with this for Christmas which included a nice journal to write in, pen set, etc. and it was a hit! Can't wait to see some of her publications...
I bought this as a stocking gift for my 15 year old daughter who loves to write. She has enjoyed going through it and has already picked out some ides from the book that she is going to use to write a creative story. Also it was well made, sturdy and came wrapped in plastic covering so nothing was bent.
It's a unique gift. You can write into the book,but sometimes you need more space so an xtra notebook is necessary if you want to go full out with your writing. The writing ideas are fun,easy and also challenging. Perfect for ppl who love to write
This product is a gift so I haven't seen beyond the sample provided online but the questions I have seen are really thought provoking and neat. I am excited to present this gift to a friend who has embarked on the arduous journey of becoming a writer and hope it is inspirational to him in challenging times. Sometimes you just need to get the juices flowing!

I bought this as a gift for my 14-year-old grandson, figuring that a shy kid who doesn't talk about "feelings" much might have trouble coming up with ideas for school writing assignments. The book does what the title suggests: gives 642 topics that people can write about. Examples: "On becoming a tycoon," "You bring someone back from the dead. Who is it?" "Put your iPod on random shuffle, write down the lyric of the first song that comes on, and use it as an opening line," "Write wedding vows. The bride is 35 years old; it's her first marriage. The groom is 48, and it's his third go-round at the altar." When I first opened it, I came across a topic that was a bit on the mature side, and figured this wouldn't work for my grandson. But looking at it again, I realized that mature subjects are the rare exception, not the rule. So it WILL go to my grandson. I hope that the tips in the book will serve as an impetus to get him writing! You don't even need paper. The book leaves anywhere from a quarter page to a full page (lined) to explore the subject. Now I am tempted to get another copy for myself. As a member of a memoir-writing group, I could use these prompts from time to time, and I find the suggestions very motivating.

This book is such a terrific gift idea for any one who wants to write more but is unsure where to begin. Bought this as a gift and think the recipient will enjoy it.
