The next installment of J.M. Snyder's popular Write Every Day series focuses on speculative fiction. There are many subgenres -- paranormal, dystopian, space opera, splatterpunk, alternate history, magic realism, high fantasy ... the list goes on. Anything fantastical or futuristic qualifies as spec fic, too. Whether you’re already writing speculative stories or you’re looking to get into them, this is the book for you!
This collection of 366 writing prompts can be used daily throughout the year (leap years, too!) as a starting point to get you writing ... and keep you writing. Each day of the year has its own, unique prompt. Set a timer for fifteen or twenty minutes, and write wherever the prompt takes you. Or, if you’re between stories and looking for something different to work on, flip to the prompt for today (or any random page) and start fresh.
This book will kick-start your writing or take you in exciting new directions every day of the year!
