Monday Exercise: 25th April 2016

Grumpy Cat bedIt’s Monday morning, and to get you in the writing mood for the week ahead, here’s a writing exercise for you to try.

Today, write a newpaper or Craigslist advert selling a dragon.

And if you fancy a challenge, it’s a dragon who, uh, has a slight…problem. Not a major one, oh no no no! It’s just that he’s a little, well…

Incontinent? Allergic to humans? Sarcastic? Too fond of your fire tongs? Has unfortunately roasted three of the neighbour’s cats, nine squirrels and four pigeons? Is just simply getting too big for your living room?

Have fun!

And Grumpy Cat can be found on Facebook.

Wednesday Writing: 20th April 2016

The idea of Wednesday Writing is to give you a prompt to write…anything! It can be a 100-word story; it can be a poem; it can be the trigger for the next section in your stalled novel; it can be for the plot of your next work. Sit down and write whatever comes out of your head!

This week’s prompt is a phrase: “I will never be the same.”
