Writing exercises for beginners

Writing exercises for 3 to 5 year olds

I don’t think that all exercises for writers are useful, or at least that they are useful beyond practicing the act of writing, which is always good. But I do find that it is the most absurd, the most unexpected, that can have the most productive effect. Forcing ourselves to think outside our usual circuits of reasoning and creation can lead us into new areas of self-discovery and skill, two virtues very necessary for a writer.

With this in mind, I present here the ten exercises that I find most interesting of all the ones I’ve come across, either because of the way they make us improve and progress in terms of plot, world creation or productivity, or simply because they amuse me.

The Sarcastic Muse is another of those meeting points for writers that touches on all kinds of topics, from the habit of writing to how to approach submissions to publishers. I loved this particular proposal:

I found this on a list of creative exercises on Cracked, which is always a guarantee of quality (ahem). Brockway starts with an exercise that always wakes up those who dare to use it: start with the end.

The first thing you need to do is first choose one of the characters from the list below (or choose a character from your own collection or from the blog’s collection of characters):

Once you have chosen the character, reflect a bit on his or her life and character. Think about their possible reactions: What would have to happen for that character to lose control of themselves and have a nervous breakdown? If you are not clear from the start, my recommendation is, as always, to brainstorm a list of at least five different proposals.

With the answer to the nervous breakdown question (or the answer you like best if you’ve made a list), start telling the story. Use that moment when the character loses control as the starting point of the story. See what you can come up with.

Creative writing exercises serve to unlock those ideas that your fingers are trying to tell on paper or keyboard.  Writing is not an easy task. Writing creative texts is not easy either.

As a writer, in the process of creative writing, you need to find the topics you want to talk about, how you want to approach them and what will be the own look you will develop on them. To achieve this, routine exploration and creation is necessary, and what better way to do it than through creative writing exercises that allow you to find your literary voice.

But how to write creatively? Are you passionate about writing? Are you interested in expressing emotions through words and/or creating other worlds through your imagination? Do you have a creative project in mind, but don’t know where to start or how to finish it?

Today’s exercise is related to this theme because we are going to curl the blank page and start a creative trigger with just that, with the blank page of a notebook. To do this, take the phrase «He wrote that word in the notebook».

When you’ve finished the list, choose the character and motif you like best. With these elements, create a text of at least 300 words. Make sure it has a beginning (brief presentation of the situation), a middle (development of the situation or action) and a denouement (in which the situation is resolved).
