My sister and I are taking a writing class together, we've only had two so far, but it's really fun. It's just about getting you writing and using different techniques to get your creative juices flowing. We did this exercise where we pulled on object off a table and free wrote about it--it was neat to see the kinds of ideas that people got from a tiny random object.
So my sister made me a shoe box full of random stuff... so I've decided to pull out an object every day (we'll see how it goes) and write about it...Beware I will post them, but I'm not going to take the time to edit them...as this is a writing exercise...not an editing exercise.
Feel free to write your own piece to post in the comments or just read along.
