Here are your four story exercises for today. If you enjoy these prompts (or are looking to improve your writing or submit a manuscript), do take a look at my online courses… currently just £1 or $1-2 each (when using coupon codes)!
Time yourself for 15 minutes for each one, then either have a break or move on to the next one. When you’ve finished, do pop over to this blog’s Facebook Group and let everyone know how you got on.
Below are the four – you can do them in any order.
- Keywords: duck, waddle, smile, jealous, fond
- Random: buying presents for each other
- Picture: what does this inspire?
- Mixed bag: barman (character 1), barmaid (ch.2), rota (object), back office (location), sorry (trait), one of the characters is an illegal immigrant (dilemma)
Have fun, and if you would like to, do paste your writing in the comment boxes below so we can see how you got on! Remember though that it counts as being published so don’t post anything that you would want to submit elsewhere (where they require unpublished).
