I have a creative writing coursebook which has tons of exercises in it which are really helpful for getting warmed up. Basically you have to write about a character or object or situation for ten minutes straight without stopping, lifting the pen off the page or editing it. Really helps free up your writing and it is much more challenging than it sounds!(Original post by Angury)
What sort of creative writing exercises do you do? I've been using some websites recently for prompts so am curious.
I've mainly been writing random stuff - not so much a story, but just little paragraphs to try and work on my writing style.
Would you pay less for a humanities degree?
