The 6' Ferret Writers' Group writing exercises
Exercises in writing stretches your spirit by giving you the opportunity to refine your abilities and free the various thoughts from your spirit before you work on your actual writing! Create a storyline and create your own storyline. Let each group member create the storyline from a different character's point of views.
Allow yourself ten or fifteen to practice your work. Declare a sequence (something from your present work, your everyday lives, everywhere), with vision, tone, touch, scent and tast. It is one of our favourites to select several catagories (e.g. character, location, time, events, odd object, conflict) and to make one or more of each.
Place the proposals in a cap (one by one) and let everyone paint a proposal from each one. Then everyone has to make a history that contains the proposals he or she has taken out of the cloak. If your group is in a social environment (e.g. a café ), select a room occupant and let everyone in your group describe that individual in detail, with details of his or her looks and manners.
Let each individual type an order for the individual on their lefthand side (e.g. "Write about a signet taking a Train to California" or whatever). For ten inches, I want you to cover this job. Someone' s going to begin the practice with a phrase. Hand the piece ofaper over to the lefthand side and the next participant will type the next phrase.
Continue until the storyline ends, or until your own copy of the huge 6' ferrets comes to life to put an end to it. It'?s a classical exercise: Start with the line "I remember" (or "I don't remember") and continue writing for fifteen min. Create a sequence from your present production, from another point of views (i.e., create a sequence from another character's point of views, or from the same character's point of views, but with the first individual instead of the third).
Create a storyline from the perspective of an everyday item (e.g. a carpet). If you see a shield you like, make a history around it! Start a history with the last line and type backwards (end with the first line). These are some exercises proposed by our website visitors:
Let each member suggest a term (e.g. an object, a personality or an event), then let them all make a history with all the proposed words. Type on the lefthand side about nine words (which are not necessarily related). Type on the right side about nine words about a certain profession of your choosing.
Pick one of these words and make a brief history or a poetry with them. Let your group make a progressively evolving history. Decide the order in which members make their contribution by pulling numbers out of a cap; then each member can spin the tale in any order by adding one page per round.
When meeting in a café or eatery, pick a character or group from another menu and think of a history that surrounds their cause. It' interesting because you observe the minute detail (such as the way humans interact, clothing, way, etc.) and use it to tell a tale the whole of it.
Every individual should take a few moments to record five to ten opening movements. Put it all on your head: Every individual has either chosen one of their own apertures for writing or put them all in a cap and drawn them. Then, take about 15 min. of writing down (you don't have to take a whole history, just type until your writing is over).
If you take a few moments to see what you've done and see if you're going somewhere, then do another 15 mins; could be a new version, a sequel, or a new bypass that' s built on something in the first bits. Make the read/write sequences at least three or four if you have enough free play and try to end with a tale.
