Remember the dead
Write something seasonalHere's a couple of fun exercises I've used with a keen student creative writing group around Halloween:
- Practice 'show, don't tell' by writing a paragraph in which a character is scared. You must demonstrate their fear as many ways as possible and avoid the word 'scared' and its synonyms.
- Write a poem, a brief monologue or a flash fiction piece inspired by an unusual phobia. A handy list of phobias is available online at the phobia list.
