Writing Exercises

Week 2: April Writing Challenge

Short Challenge

Make believe your writing is something you cooked. Write a rave review for it like a food/restaurant critic would.

Long Challenge

Choose the word that most appeals to you:      Alabama     Banister     Carousel     Diesel     Exorcist

Choose another word that appeals to you:     Flatulence     Garage     Harried     Insensitive     Jambalaya

Choose yet another word that you find appealing:     Keepsake     Lamb     Massage     Nonsense     Oriole

Use these three words in a story.

Start with: Sometimes I feel just like a gerbil, running around and around on his wheel!

*The book suggests that you write continuously for 10 minutes with stopping. If you get stuck just write the same word over and over and over again until you get unstuck. Don’t worry about editing, grammar, spelling, etc. Let your mind guide your hand.
