Like any writer I believe in workshops, passing our writing around, giving and taking feedback, learning techniques and sharing all the awesome stuff in our heads. You never ever ever stop learning. So if we can make some of the brutal work of building our writing up and taking it down fun, why not?
Every month I’ll post a writing exercise that we can all do together. I’ll keep all the prompts linked here for an easy reference. If you have any feedback let me know in the linked workshop posts.
#2 “Like Tears in Rain”-Recollection Exercise
#3 “Why’d it have to be snakes?”-Fear Exercise
#4 First Page of Firsts–We workshop the first page of any story/chapter
