This week, surprise yourself every time you write.
Open your dictionary and choose three words. Any words will do.
Write 150 words, including those three words.
Then open your dictionary again, and choose another three words.
Write another 150 words, including the three words you just chose.
Write quickly, don't stop and think about what you're writing, just write whatever comes to mind.
You've now written 300 words.
Close the computer file, or put your journal away.
Tomorrow, look at your 300 words - do you have the beginnings of a story, or an essay?
You'll often surprise yourself that indeed you do.
If you don't, do the exercise again.
This exercise is great to tap into your creativity, and you can do it anytime, anywhere.
Share your thoughts about the results you got from this exercise in the comments to this post.
