If you don’t know me by now, I’m big into writing exercises. If you’re going to be a writer, you have to write. It doesn’t have to be fantastic or even good, but by writing, you’ll discover what works and what doesn’t.
So the latest writing exercise is a website called oneword.com. The website is set up to be a writing exercise in and of itself.
When you go to the website (http://www.oneword.com/), you click “go” and it will give you a word. You have sixty seconds to write whatever you want, using the word as a prompt.
When you’re done, you can put your name on it and submit it. Or you can put an alias on it if you aren’t proud, or you can choose not to submit it.
But whether you decide to submit it or not, you should go out to the website to give it a try. You just might like it.
