Take 15 20 minutes to complete one of these exercises.

 

1. Think of a journey that you took recently. Write down a list of words that described your feelings while on the journey. Use this list as a jumping off point for your writing.

 

2. Think of the title of one of your favorite books. Write a short selection that captures the essence of the title (but preferably does not follow the plot of the book).

 

3. Imagine a place that is so small it is claustrophobic. Now write a scene between two characters in dialogue, one of whom is trying to convince the other that the space is actually expansive.
