It is Friday night, here in the Washington, DC metro area. The weather will be lovely tomorrow, and I hope it is smashing where you are. With that in mind, I thought it would be a good time for all of us to get some exercise.
Anyone reading this have writer’s block? Need a break from the writing project you’re working on? Good! I’ve got a little challenge for you.
I’m going to give you a little framework, and a concept to work with. I want you to comment on this post with your “solution”. Let’s have a go at it!
Setting: street corner, not busy in the nasty early (too early) morning hours
Character: fictionalized version of YOU
Issue at hand: the character has just seen a UFO for the first time. What happens to him/her? Any interesting feelings or sensations?
Take 10 minutes and write the first thing that squirts out of your brain. Don’t edit it. Just post it.
