Writing Exercises – Do Something Entirely Different

August 7, 2009

I sometimes find it difficult to keep writing about the same topic day in and day out. Even if I inject some of my personality, it still seems stale. The best way I know to refresh your writing is to write something entirely different. And I don’t mean just a different topic. I mean a different format altogether!

For example, if you spend a lot of time writing for the Internet, like I do, use a pen and paper and just write a letter. Make it to a fictional person, or a famous person, and really get something off your chest. Maybe you want to write to your congressman about some boneheaded thing he did recently, or maybe you want to write a love letter to Brad Pitt. Whatever it is, make it entirely different.

Try poetry, fiction, short stories, or even a screenplay. Really try to stretch your writing skills. Who cares if it’s bad? You don’t have to show anyone. The important thing is to really push yourself to do something different. You may find you like it, or you have a knack for another writing style you did not know you have. Or maybe…you’ll find that you should stick with what you do best! Either way, you’ll have given yourself a break from writing the same thing, and that will refresh your approach. The most important thing – have fun! It’s not meant to be frustrating, but simply a way to break up your routine and keep your creative juices flowing.

Happy writing!
