Writing Exercises

by bdhesse

I’ve been working on a few writing exercises lately to try and get myself back into the flow of writing. The two I’ve been focusing are fairly similar: In the first one, take the letters of the alphabet and mix them up, then write a story using each letter in the order you have them without adding anything to it. In the second one, write a 25 word poem or a 50 word prose using only words that begin with the same letter.

What writing exercises do you use to get yourself writing?
