With this writing exercise, we are moving from Beginnings to Characterization.
This writing exercise challenges the notion of “write what you know.”
It’s been over six months since I did a writing exercise in here. I don’t know how that happened, but it’s changing pronto.
Don’t forget, you can comment with your own exercises and we can all workshop together!
We’re beginning a story with a song this time.
I had the third of six food writing classes this evening with the Table Hopping Times Union blogger Steve Barnes.
Our assignment this week was to write about the act of cooking. I opted to write about my buffalo chicken dip, which I made on Saturday.
After I read it to the class, Steve made a good suggestion on something key I left out that should have been mentioned – can you guess what it is?
As with the last exercise, here we are using a “stolen” first line to jump start our ideas.
Following along with the first two writing exercises, appropriately this one has to do with the opening of a story. What better way to begin a series of writing exercises than at the beginning?
