Out of a Hat
Write down different styles of creative writing, like poetry, playwriting, memoir and fiction. Scramble them up and pick one. Then, write down different genres, such as, romance, adventure, mystery, horror, or comedy. Finally, write down a variety of evocative nouns, such as, dinosaur, cactus, drive-in, librarian, pool table, etc. Choose a style and a couple of nouns at random, and create a piece of writing in that style and genre that somehow incorporates those nouns.
Color Inspiration
Choose a color, and let it be the guiding theme for your story, poem or scene. Think about the emotions, objects and settings that are associated with that color. Let the color run throughout your story in obvious and subtle ways.
Musical Interlude
Choose a song, or series of songs, without lyrics. Let the rhythm of the music be the inspiration for the form and content of your story. How do the different instruments become different characters or objects in your piece? How do breaks or pauses in the song impact the plot, or structure of your writing?
Picture It
Find an image in a magazine or an interesting postcard. Use the picture to inspire a piece of writing. How does the image resonate with you? What does it remind you of? If you're feeling particularly ambitious, find a series of unrelated images, and try writing the story that connects them.
Walk on the Creative Side
Take a walk around your neighborhood, and make note of interesting things you sense around you. What does the air smell like? What kinds of plants do you see? Who else is out walking around? Use the things you see to inspire your next piece of creative writing.
Writing Resources
For more help with your writing, check out these Study.com resources for middle school writers that can guide you toward improving your own skills and learning more about the creative works you read. With the help of each chapter's articles, video lessons and quizzes, you may very soon be writing your own masterpiece!
The Writing Process
Narrative Writing
Poetry Types and Devices
While you can enjoy the exercises solo, a lot of writing groups have gone online during the coronavirus pandemic and are using Zoom, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger or Skype to keep in touch with other writers during this time.
If you're running such a group and following a 'Shut Up and Write' structure, I recommend connecting on WhatsApp (for example) first, doing the exercise together, with participants sending each other their writing samples where necessary as part of the exercise, then disconnecting to write in silence for an hour and a half, before reconnecting for a brief informal chat at the end. This works well with small remote groups and is a great way to gain some online support and stay productive!
If you have a larger group, it's worth looking into Zoom, as this has a feature called Breakout Rooms. Breakout Rooms let you split different writers into separate rooms, which is great for group activities. The free version of Zoom has a 40 minute limit, which can be restrictive, but Zoom Pro is well worth it if you're going to use it on a regular basis. In my experience, Zoom has a better connection than Skype or WhatsApp.
I hope you remain healthy and creative throughout this difficult time for us all.
I run a Creative Writing Meetup for adults and teens in Montpellier every week where we start with a 5 to 20 minute exercise, followed by an hour and a half of silent writing, where we each work on our own project. Each of these exercises has been used with the group and works well. Where the exercises below specify a number of people, if you have a larger group, simply split everyone up into smaller groups as appropriate.
The solo exercises are ideal if you’re working by yourself to help stimulate your mind before working on a larger project or to overcome writer’s block, or can be used with a larger group, where you simply ask everyone to share what they’ve written in groups of 3 or 4 people afterwards. Looking for something quick to fire your imagination? Check out these creative writing prompts for adults.
A Letter From Your Character To You
If your goal is to write a complete work of fiction, whether it be a novel, a play or a movie script, you will one day need to write to an agent or publisher to ask them to publish your work.
In this exercise, we turn this around and ask you to instead spend 10 minutes writing a letter from a character in your novel to you, the author, explaining why you should write about them! This serves three purposes:
If you're doing this exercise with a group of teens or adults, and some of the group haven't already started working on their masterpiece, they can instead choose any fictional novel that they love and imagine that a character within it wrote to the author in the first place to ask them to write their story. What did that letter look like?
As you write, it helps you get into the mindset of the character. Ask yourself how they would language this letter and what they would consider important to include.
It's motivating to know that your character wants you to write about them.
It's good practice for when you will need to send a letter to an agent or publisher.
When you're browsing for a book, there will be times when you read the opening sentence and gono, that's not for me, and other times when the book will grab you immediately. In this exercise the task is to write an opening sentence either to a book you're currently writing, or simply for an imaginary piece of literature. Here are some of my favourite opening sentences to get you going:
It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.
