It’s been awhile since I could think of a blog topic I wanted to write about. GD inspired an idea with the “Open Comments” week.
While we have Showcase with it’s prompt, I thought it would be fun to try something a bit more impromptu. A bit of ‘Writer’s prompt meets Improv open mic night at the comedy club.’
So for this particular exercise, I have listed several prompts below.
In the comments section, let us know which prompt you chose and then write a short piece, including the parameters of the prompt. I think a max of 700 words should be enough for a writing exercise. Hopefully, this will jumpstart anyone needing to break out of a writing bog, entertain those wanting to read new and fresh, and maybe help others work through a particular tricky passage in whatever they are currently working on. Regardless, we’re writers. Writing exercises are fun. Let’s stretch our boundaries and have some fun!
