Lettuce roll it back a wee bit off the serious track and talk about the lighter side of writing. Whether or not you believe in such a thing as writer’s block, it is known that one must continue to exercise the writerly muscles lest they wither. One way to do this is with:
1. A petty falsehood; a fib.
2. Silly pretentious speech or writing; twaddle.
A friend of mine made a gift to me of the book 642 THINGS TO WRITE ABOUT. In this fun volume, you’ll find literally 642 writing prompts with space to explore the lighter side, for the most part. There are some exercises that could tend toward the serious if you let them… but I find, so far, that the fun ones draw me in the most.
If you don’t have the time to write for hours and find yourself itching to write *something*, try for something fun and silly, and your writer mind will take you there.
Bonus T words for writers: Tea!, Time, Truth
