The Writing Exercise: A Recipe & Like Water For Words: A Simile Exercise
Increase the amount of time spent with your dominatrix. Obey her. Pain, delusions of grandeur and self-doubt are typical symptoms. Continue. The virus is beginning to take hold…
You are now satisfactorily infected. Write! Do this for the rest of your life.
Exercise went well. I woke up at 7am (it is Saturday after all) and spent a bit of time working through the simile exercise. Page 64 was more of an inspiration page to make daily writing a habit and routine.
I felt like I got more creative as I got further down the prompts. I was able to make different “scenes” in my head off of them and had different character voices speaking to me. Some I quickly pictured in relationships, some not. Some normal people, some villains. It was fun and definitely made me think a bit more about how I could incorporate more similes into my own writing because they are fun additions and make you visualize the “scenes” much better!
Hello September! I am doing my own self-imposed writing challenge this month using the Now Write book series to do so. I will NOT be posting every single day. Maybe just a few here or there that I especially like for whatever reason. Enjoy!
