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

 

1. Free write! No guidelines.      

 

2. Think of a body of water - this can be as large as an ocean or as small as a puddle. Describe it from the point of view of someone who has happened upon it for the first time and is both discovering the awe of finding it but also feeling fear at happening upon something unknown.  

 

3. Write a scene between two old friends who each have decided to divulge a secret that could tear their friendship apart.
