Sixty second writer
The candy store that I remember most was the front porch of someone's house on the way to school. I don't know how he got away with it, the the location was perfect. I have no idea how much I spent going and coming home from school, but I think that I must have paid part of his rent lol. Place your candy store and then try to come up with a few scenarios for it. There is so much leeway with a little business of this sort!

The Almost Totally Random Writing Exercise Generator You're the Inspiration... Several years ago, I saw a random paring generator on a friend's website, and thought it was neat, but wanted something a little less specific for my own use, since I liked to choose my own pairing. I created The Almost Totally Random Writing Exercise Generator, with input from ElmyraEmilie to generate writing exercises to inspire our writing muses. The premise is that each prompt included a technical parameter (such as pov, word length or writing time), a writing style or character type parameter, and a word or phrase for inspiration.

Writing about people unlike yourself– by race, ethnic group, age, and certainly gender or sexual preference– is always a big challenge, but also of great interest to a creative writer. One class member spoke of an excellent contemporary novel written by a woman and narrated by a man.

Voleur de secrets Okay, this rat is leaving the ship. I’m not going to delete it, but I’m not going to use this blog anymore for a while. Maybe later.

10 Reading Exercises for Fiction Writers I always find it exciting when I discover a book that in some way echoes whatever I happen to be writing at the time.

After reading several duds recently, I finally came across such a book–The China Garden by Kristina Olsson.
