The third book in The Write Spot series, The Write Spot: Reflections is an entertaining group of short stories, vignettes, and poems that inspire readers to become writers.
When I told my book formatter I was working on another book (the third book within a year), she asked me if I was crazy. Well, maybe, but writing and working with writers are my joy and passion. I began gathering stories and Reflections is the lovely result.
If you want to write and don’t know how to get started, this book is for you.
If you are a writer and feeling stuck, this book is for you.
If you read for enjoyment, this book is for you.
Every story in Reflections includes a prompt that can be used as a spark to encourage a free flowing type of writing. The Resources section features information about how to write using prompts, as well as blogs and magazines for writers.
I hope you enjoy The Write Spot: Reflections and I hope you are inspired to write.
From memories of an 18-year-old diving into a murky pool, to an octogenarian’s musing life’s what-ifs, from an eerie tale of a gas station stop, to poetry inspired by a sketch, Reflections reveals the richness found in a single prompt. In this third volume of The Write Spot series, Marlene Cullen again gathers voices of all shapes, sizes, and timbre, gently nudging a reader towards pen and paper, keyboard and monitor. Just write, they say. — Claudia Larson
To see the world in a grain of sand or the future in a ball of lightning, to see meanings in a psychedelic bubble or in a glass bottle of Coca Cola, Reflections vividly mirrors elements of our multifaceted life—imagined by a myriad of sharp-eyed writers. — Kate Farrell, author and storyteller
