Writing Exercise #1- Ten Words

Filed under: Writing Exercises — Tags: , , — ax20 @ 2:29 pm

This is an exercise that you do with a friend and can be a lot of fun. My friend and I used to do this in class in High School and it really challenged us to be creative. First, you should sit together and brainstorm. Come up with ten unrelated words. Each of you should write a story including all ten words and then compare.

To make this more difficult, you can either have more than ten words or add a writing technique requirement such as write the story in second person, make sure a cat dies, or include a flashback, etc.
