What did I think?

This book made me remember all the reasons why I wanted to write. It made me remember my hopes and my dreams. Not only that, it then gave me a plan to achieve those things and keep recapping on my progress.

The writing prompts are completely awesome. They’re interesting and personal. I only did a couple of them myself but I will definitely be going back to do others. I also loved the quotes, really inspiring.

Reading this book, was like having a writing coach of my own, motivating me and encouraging on my journey.

This is a book that I will definitely be recommending to other authors both those in the early stages in their career but also those well into their career as there is something in this book for everyone.

The layout is easy to navigate and go back to. I had this book on a digital copy but I am definitely going to treat myself to the physical book as it’s something I’d like to complete and look back at in years to come.

So happy I found this fabulous journal.
