Topic: review your own book
Setup: It's the future and you have finished your book. It has been revised and polished within an inch of its life and you have actually sold it. You're holding the contract in your hands. But, your publisher is asking for something out of the ordinary: a review.
Prompt: Play critic and write a review of your own book. Step outside yourself as "author" and imagine what you'd say about your book if you didn't have the background knowledge that came with writing it.
