I haven't lately, but I'm thinking I should make more time to do so.
Because even though I stretch my writing muscles in one direction most every day, there are other muscles that could benefit from cross training.
Exposure to and the practice of different types of writing are good ways to grow as a writer. Besides, you never know what ideas might spring from a little writing exercise.
One of my favorite prompts is Hemingway's Challenge. If you aren't familiar with these six word stories, check out the details here.
Another favorite source of inspiration is The Writer's Idea Book by Jack Heffron. It's packed full of great writing prompts. If you'd like more info, click here for my review.
How do you stretch your writing muscles? Have any prompts to share?
P.S. If you happened to miss Thursday's post, we discussed the perfect blog spa. What's a blog spa? Check it out and see. I'm curious to see what you think! :)
