  • In any craft or career, practice is essential. Surely by now you’ve heard that it takes 10,000 hours to become a master at any craft. That means you’ll spend 10,000 hours writing before your working at the expert level. Writing exercises are an excellent way to gain practice and practical experience.

    One of the best ways to write a good descriptive piece is to think about the five senses. Sight is a commonly used sense, as it’s usually the one we rely on most, but what about sound? What about touch or taste or smell? Here are three writing exercises you can use to explore the senses in your writing.

  • This is probably the most popular writing exercise to get the juices flowing. Pull up a new Word document, take a deep breath and just write whatever comes to mind. Dig as deep as you can into your subconscious and don’t worry about what comes out. Sometimes there’s a mental blockage with something that’s been bothering you, so it helps to write it down and get it out of your system.

    There are many [to the power of many] websites and books which offer writing exercises and prompts. Most work on the principle of setting a limit on our writing – normally a time limit, sometimes a word limit.

  • Obviously some senses are going to be harder than others—taste is one I struggle with—but the point of these writing exercises is to branch out.

Develop themes in your stories with these fiction writing exercises.

The best way to become a better writer is to write. Therefore, by doing these writing exercises regularly - they are great for warming up - your skills, discipline and creativity will continue to improve.
