Look here every Saturday for a weekly writing exercise that will get you warmed up and inspired to return to your novel. Who knows, it could turn out to be your next short story or even the next chapter of your novel! When you complete the exercise, share it with us by posting it on our blog as a comment.
This week’s exercise:
You have received a believable-looking, business-sized white envelope in the mail. The return address is from a company called Peerless. Printed on the envelope, in bright red letters, are the words, “You May Have Already Won.” Tell the story of what it is you may have won – or what it is you didn’t win. Tell what you do with this envelope.
Start with: Life takes some funny twists and turns…
This week’s inspiration is taken from the book, The Write Brain Workbook, by Bonnie Neubauer.
