Take 15 – 20 minutes to complete one of these exercises.

 

1.  Do an unencumbered free-write. No guidelines!

 

2.  Place a character that you are currently working on (or a favorite character from a book/short story) in the center of an argument. One that holds significant consequences for the character.

 

3.  Recreate the space in which you currently fine yourself, trying to render your sensory experience of it through words. Then place a character that you are currently working on (or another of your choosing) in that space. Rewrite the selection allowing that character to experience the space.
