List Yourself - A journal with a different topic on each page as you make a list of different things in your life relating to that topic. Examples include: List your favorite movies; List the times in your life when you felt lucky; If you had a house fire, list the things you would grab first, etc.
The Writer's Book of Matches - A small book of writing prompts. I had to order this one online from Barnes and Noble. Not sure if you can find it in the store but it's a great start to ideas that get your brain thinking. Very very helpful.
The Book of Me, A Do It Yourself Memoir - The journal my hubby got me for memoir writing. A serious account of one's life from birth to future.
A Picture of Me - Another journal like the one above. This one is more fun and a shorter book. It's great to explore friends and family, listing the preferences of different people you know.
The Little Red Writing Book - This one I have but haven't explored yet. It's just a reading book with no activities, but is helpful with writing rules.
Take Ten - Ten minute writing exercises that really get your mind thinking. It works best to set a timer, something I don't have. I gotta watch the clock which actually helps me to think as I write. I'm so happy I got this book!
