Leslie Leigh Carlsen over at Leslie’s Writing Exercises has expanded on one of my creative offerings (Number 3 from 5 Ways to Shake Up Your Writing). Here’s what she writes:

Hmm. What to do with that old story you gave up on a few years back?  The one you nurtured and fell in love with, back when you first started taking yourself seriously as a writer?  You remember the one. Maybe it’s in the far corner of some dark drawer now, still folded inside the sad-looking SASE that ferried it back home from that small-press literary journal you submitted it to.

Well, pull it out of the drawer.  I’ve got something for you….to read more, click here.

I make a point of offering writing and creativity exercises on this blog that can be done quickly (in 15 minutes or so) or can be expanded, depending on your schedule and mood. But if you’re looking for more extensive  suggestions, Leslie’s Writing Exercises provides wonderful weekly posts “to stimulate our creativity, enrich our settings, deepen our characters, and surprise our readers.” You’re invited to find “places to apply them as you write and revise your current manuscript.”
