When the DN's used to have regular meetings one of the staples was the writing exercise. We would set the clock to 5, 10 or 15 minutes, pick a word out of the ether (be it object, name or emotion) and construct a story within the time limit. Sometimes we would add more restrictions such as genre and tense. These exercises were to help fire the imagination, loosen up the creative muscles and sharpen the mind. Most of the time the results of the exercise were not worth anything but sometimes they would provide the kernel of a pretty good story.
With this in mind, I thought I would pose a writing exercise for the blog.
The exercise for today is:
Write 100 words (exactly, excluding title) on the theme DRAGON
Good luck, and please feel free to post your stories in the comment section. I would love to read them!
