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

 

1. Free write - no guidelines! 

 

2.  Imagine an open field. Write a detailed list of the scenery. Now imagine a very different setting. Using your list of descriptions, write a short selection set in that second second using imagery from your first list.

 

3. "My hands trembled as I picked up what I knew to be..." Let this sentence starter serve as inspiration for your free write.
