All of the exercises I post are quick and easy. After all, you don't have to write long stuff for writing to be real. Frankly, if you can't write short pieces, you probably won't be able to write anything that's lengthy...at least not well.
Short writing exercises help to build confidence. They allow the time to rearrange phrases or sentences and to really paint pictures with words.
Writers, if you're already working on a novel, these short exercises are a good break from brain strain. They help to free your mind and get your creativity flowing again.
Teachers, parents,and creative geniuses, kids who love words begin to enjoy writing. In fact, kids who learn to love language want to write.
Are you ready play with words? I like questions. They provide the backdrop for some fun quick writing. Here's a question for you (or your students) to answer. Why can't I ever find the end of a lovely rainbow?
Make sure you paint a picture with your words when you answer the question. Give me details. Since I've always wondered about rainbows, I can't wait to hear your answers!
