    Spent the whole day on this book. Great info; however, way too detailed for me. I feel like I'm back in college again. This is a book you will want to own and chew like you are eating an elephant. I think I could read every day for the rest of my life and never finish this book. And in a way, this is a good thing. I don't have the patience at the moment. Two of my best "take away" chapters, and they aren't separated numerically from many others, is chapter 38 and 43. The writing prompts in 38...h Spent the whole day on this book. Great info; however, way too detailed for me. I feel like I'm back in college again. This is a book you will want to own and chew like you are eating an elephant. I think I could read every day for the rest of my life and never finish this book. And in a way, this is a good thing. I don't have the patience at the moment. Two of my best "take away" chapters, and they aren't separated numerically from many others, is chapter 38 and 43. The writing prompts in 38...here's one in summary: (1) make a list of as many aspects of my life as possible. Big or small, it doesn't matter. I am taking a life inventory. I decided, to list my present day; it just felt easier. (2) pull out one item and write a few pages about it. It could be a personal essay or it can be fictionalized in some way. I chose a personal essay about a particular food I like to eat that I'm making for dinner. Another technique I enjoyed was similar to the above except to arrange some of the items in the list into headings (or categories), such as my hobbies, passions, gifts, habits I want to break...etc. Then, again, write several pages on it. I chose one of my passions -- learning. I found out quickly, on page 1 of my page (which was paper and pen) that I needed to narrow this down; otherwise, I would be writing for years (probably not but that's my thinking at the time). So I made a more detailed list. I actually got bogged down and write pages on what and why I like to learn. I learned a lot about myself while writing this. This is a library book and I do have it out for another few weeks, I am choosing to stop here and record all the notes I took from the reading...there's so much to apply I'm going to need to figure out where to begin to apply. I'm going to return the book to the library tomorrow and take note that if I ever need to gather new ideas or get stuck on idea generating, this is the book to re-read. This book is great; however, I do recommend skipping and choosing rather than trying to plow through it like I have.
