Yari Garcia A writing prompt is an idea to inspire you to write. It is a starting point for those times when you are feeling stuck, when you don’t know what to write, or when you simply want something spontaneous to write about. A prompt can be anything~ it can be a painting that inspires you to write a story about it. It can be a song that you want to make into a short story. It can be random words and names that you put together to create your own tale. The possibilities are endless!
In this book, I’m going to give you 100 writing prompts to get you started. Use them when you feel the dreaded “writer’s block”, or when you want a random topic to write about. I've divided the prompts into four categories: Romance, Scary/Horror, School/Life/Self-Esteem, Family, and Fantasy/Sci-fi. Each category includes 20 prompts that you can write about.
Some of the prompts include: ~ You realize that you have the ability to make anyone fall in love with whomever you choose. This works on school mates, teachers, strangers, movie stars, pop stars, and even yourself. Who do you pair up, and why? ~ There’s a basement in your house that your parents never told you about. You go down there, and you find _____. ~ You've finally found a mix of ingredients that cures your acne. However, the ingredients are icky and gross. What are they? ~ Write a short story from the point of view of a soda can inside a vending machine. What would it feel like to be crowded in there, waiting to be picked? ~ Write about what you think your family ancestors were like. ~ ...and many more!!

About Bryexe: She Lives in a Dollhouse:
Bryexe (pronounced Bree-Ex), is no-doubt the strangest girl in school. She’s so strange, people swear she’s out of this world. When a guy named Liam is dared to go on a date with her, he quickly accepts—not knowing he’s in for the ride of his life. Bryexe is on to him, though, and she needs him. She convinces him to help her look for “something paranormal” where she used to live with her mother—in an enchanted dollhouse. Liam falls into a world of paranormal activity, unforeseen dangers, and near-misses, all while wondering if he should allow himself to fall in love with this mysterious, otherworldly Gothic girl…
Thank you so much for your feedback and support. You guys rock :-)
Yari Garcia By 2011, I had been “put through the wringer” by my alcoholism. When I was finally able to get sober, I felt like I came out of a dark tunnel after years of being lost. I was finally able to stay sober and sane. Finally, the despair, confusion, and frightening events were over!
Unfortunately, when you’re an alcoholic, nothing is ever really over. You don’t just find sobriety and then “get over it”. It’s something you have to constantly work on. In this book, I help you figure out how to work on your continuous sobriety.
Alcohol is always going to be there, readily available. We can’t escape it or hide from it. It’s sold at convenience stores, grocery stores, sporting events, concerts, and more. I even recently saw a bar at the local shopping mall, in the food court. Alcohol is always there, and it’s not going anywhere. I don’t mean to sound dramatic, but we need to coexist, or we'll cease to exist.
This book contains a few of the lessons I’ve learned in the past few years. I will be speaking about issues that I encountered, what I did to solve those issues, and what has changed since I’ve become sober for the long-term. There is also a Q&A section at the end with 20 of the questions I’m most frequently asked, and the answers I have for those questions.
I share these experiences with the hope to help others avoid some of the mistakes I made, and to support you in your long-term sobriety goals.
I wish you the best on your path to sobriety, Yari Garcia
