Woo, I’m writing more about writing again!
A while back I talked about how blogging can be a good writing exercise. (Well, I attempted to, at least. Don’t think I got my points across, haha.) Another good exercise is just getting some experience under your belt. I really want to get to writing that one secret project which shall remain secret for a while now, but I’m afraid I’ll just balls it up because I don’t have that much writing experience yet. (That, and the planning isn’t complete, yet.)
So what will I be doing? Well, I set up this thing in a lovely small community on reddit. Every three of four weeks I’ll put up a new “round”. Every round is roughly the same, using the same “as little limits as possible” guidelines and all, and a new phrase. The phrase is randomly generated, and we’re all going to try and write short stories using that phrase.
This week’s phrase? Log touching. Yeah, it’s random, that’s the way random phrase generators work. I have a thing or two in mind, so I think I’ll be able to write something. (7500 words seems like so much though.) I wonder what other people will come up with, since “log” on its own already has a bunch of different meanings. Looking forward to reading the results.
If you’re up for a fun little challenge, be sure to join in!
EDIT: Apparently this didn’t show up properly when I posted it. It should be working normal now though!
