Get Creative Now!

As we head into the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, I’m offering a round-up of the writing exercises I’ve created for this blog. All of them can be done in 15 minutes—or take longer if you’re inspired!

Use a clincher detail to create a vivid character in just one sentence

Dream up some metaphors

Embrace your bad writing

Transform a creative block into a character (with another example here)

Turn your life into a movie, a bubblegum card, a fortune cookie…

Use a word pile to create something tasty

Write a haiku about creativity

Create a faux-history for a random item

Dive into a word pool to write about a physical, emotional or creative journey

Use the environment to reflect a significant change in a character’s life

Turn found words and phrases into something new

For bloggers—create a poem using search engine terms

You’ll also find photo prompts here and here, and some 5-minute creative quickies here.

And, if you want to work on something larger, write the story of your life with a series of 6-word memoirs.
