Writing exercise

  1. aNYer
    This can be where we organize writing exercises for those that want to get back into writing or just want some inspiration to write. So go ahead and post any exercises, ideas, etc. etc. etc. you can think of here.

    I used to do this with some other writers. Basically this is how it works.

    Posters each put one rule for a short story at a time. So for example one poster will say the story has to include this or that, then the next will add a new rule. And this continues until there are 5 or 6 (more or less depending on what people want) To clarify

    1st person: There has to be a gun in the story somehow.
    2nd person: The gun can not be fired but must be aimed at someone.
    3rd person: The story must contain the word Ruby

    And eventually you have a nice little handful of rules and you see all the different ways people can flip that into a story. Anyone interested?

    The war veteran for some reason keeps seeing images of a local woman holding a baby.
