So far, I’m really happy with these booklets. I’ve received enthusiastic feedback from a few readers, and it seems the booklets are doing exactly what I’d hoped: providing inspiration to others. On a personal level, they’ve also been very fun and challenging for me to write. I’m stretching my creative muscles, pushing myself to explore genres in which I never thought I could write, and even learning more about the literary world (and in this case, history!) along the way.
At the halfway point (500 prompts, 5 booklets), I’m very relieved that I’ve yet to run out of ideas. One concern I had going into this project was that I would really struggle with coming up with so many prompts without repeating myself. While a few sub-genres have been tricky, and I’m sure a few themes have repeated, so far so good.
Thank you to all who have read my booklets and are looking forward to the rest of the series. I couldn’t do this without your support and encouragement. Happy writing!
