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

 

1. Think about a scene that you are currently working on. Rewrite it as if it were a play, then as if it were a poem. Use these different genres to look at your work from another point of view.      

 

2. Flip through a magazine and find a picture that resonates with you. Write a short free write based on that picture.  

 

3. Think about a moment that you will never forget. Write a free write trying to communicate the indelible character of that experience.
