Writing exercises for new short story ideas
At times the most difficult part of writing is finding out what to do with this empty page. But a new short story concept doesn't necessarily have to be a pain. Hopefully on your way to a new short story. As a minimum, free writing will force you to put words on the page (a good beginning for healing writer's block).
However, in the ideal case you will be writing about an idea or situation that is deserving of further study. Adjust your time to 5 min and type without removing the pen from the printer. You can even use a phrase to begin a new short story! Favourite writing exercises for groups or couples use mysteries to suggest puzzles and topics you don't normally use.
Alone, in twos or in groups, you will find a story you would not have thought of alone. Have a look at the literature journal and the People Holding podcasts, which assign photographs to the writers! In some cases, the simple use of new words can be an inspiration for your writing to take a new course. Some randomly selected words will form a new emphasis for today's writing in this tutorial.
Collect words, sentences, pictures and items that are inspiring so that when the writer's lock hits, you have a place to rotate. Make a note of a number of reminders. Then, go back and try to find out why every remembrance is important. Does it have a peculiar kind of subtlety?
Attempt writing from another character's perspective. Now, make history! Gather accidental phrases from outsiders and begin a story with each one. You will often only be inspirated by just rereading your old work and can end the initial story you began, but if that doesn't work, go back to an old story you never ended and choose a line of it at random. Here's how it works.
Begin a new story about something else by just using this first line. One never knows when one will be drawn inspiration from a story that one could not before.
