Writing Exercises

10.18.2005

I have submitted a piece to Flashquake. I got a receipt confirmation email from them the other day. I should hear back sometime in November if my piece is selected. We'll see.

I have a degree in English. But, my background is mostly in literature and technical writing. The only creative writing class I ever took was a poetry class. That was so damn painful. I love the idea and concept of creative writing, but I have the biggest fear of sharing. I criticize and edit the work before I even read it to someone. I already know what they're going to say. I'm going to have to go home and dig out some of those poems. I will probably cringe in anguish when I read them, but I have a feeling I'll probably post them anyway.

I'm looking for good writing exercises. The Alchera Project looks like it offers some good topical challenges. Any of you have any ideas or suggestions? Perhaps I need to do like FTS and come up with a Theme topic for the week and write something about that. Again, suggestions?

  • I have zero suggestions, I did a small outline, other than that I'm writing from the hip, so to speak.
