Each of us needs a little urging at time to write and create. These 20 minute daily exercises will assist you in doing exactly that.
Each day a new topic or thought will be posted. Clear your mind, and then just let all the ideas that pop up come pooring out. You are encouraged to write for about 20 minutes. This will be fun and interesting and may lead to a longer story or even an idea for a book. Have fun, enjoy and share.
The software WriteSparks! is an ideal tool for doing your exercises, try WriteSparks! Lite for free.
Writing Prompt Topic: Involving the Senses (v. 5)
Exercise: In 400 words or less, describe the reactions of a character who enters an unfamiliar location. He/she should use all five senses to show the reader how the new environment is perceived.
In your critique, decide how effectively the writer revealed the character's response to the surroundings. Did you get a clear mental image of the location? Did you identify with the character's reaction? Why or why not?
