Jumping Off Places - Week ONE!
We all need a place, a reason to just 'jump right in!' when it comes to our writing. This blog provides a list, on Friday's, for you to Jump Start our writing skills. I provide first lines, you "jump right in" and try your hand at creative writing! Any exercise of your writing will help you improve your creative thought processes, inspire you and others who read your piece, and it might be a significant discipline in creativity! Here's how it works: 1) First Lines provided here. 2) Write a post using the first line of your choice. It doesn't have to be long, just a few thoughts or a paragraph. Anything. Who knows, it could become a story! 3) Take your time--One Week--then come back next Friday and link in! 4) We'll read each other's work and Enjoy! 5) If you like, you can add First Lines for Week TWO: 1) She was sitting, all crouched down, in the corner of the room, staring at the side wall. 2) A flock of squawking birds flew overhead, but I I heard nothing. 3) Gumballs hit the floor with a crash, scattering everywhere, under the bureau, atop the rug, and rolling into the spare room. 4) Like steam rising from a dryer vent, it seemed to be rising from both his ears. 5) I quickly jotted down the address and ran for the door with my purse and keys in hand. Happy CREATIVE writing! Don't forget to come back and link in!
