Exercises

Every weekday morning (10am UK time) I post four writing exercises on the home page of this blog. You have 15 minutes to write each exercise – you can choose one or all four then post the number of the prompt and what you write. Anyone else stopping by can then comment on it, and we chat about writing (especially short stories) in this blog’s Facebook Group.

I then post the links below so you won’t miss a thing… and you can do the exercises at any time!

The exercises are a mixture of…

  • Sentence starts = what they say on the tin. You can start the beginning of the story with them or a later sentence but they’re a great way of kicking off. My 365-Day Writer’s Block Workbook (Vol 1) eBook has over 1,000 of them (plus 50+ writing tips).
  • Keywords = the words have to appear in the story but can be in any order and can be lengthened (e.g. clap to clapping). Workbook volume 2 has three sets of keywords a day and tips at the end of each week, on the same format as volume 1.
  • First person piece or monologue (a one-sided conversation).
  • Dialogue only = this is where you literally just write a conversation between two people. No ‘he said’, ‘she said’ or description, just speech and the reader has to be able to keep up. 🙂
  • Second-person = some of you will know that I champion. The prompt can be in any style but has to be written in second-person viewpoint… oh, what a hardship. 🙂
  • Single-word prompt = sometimes all it takes is one word to spawn an idea. Sometimes it easy, sometimes hard but invariably fun.
  • Mixed bag = two characters, an object, a location, a dilemma, a trait. Mix them all together and you have a plot… usually.

I love to talk about writing so feel free to email me.
