Time for the last instalment of my 10 Minute Writing Moments series. As a reminder, these have been exercises that can be at least started in a short time period. To get in my daily dose of writing I have found I often have to write in short spurts in between the hearth and home chaos moments – at least it gives me material!
Writing Activity #4:
There is a whole collection of these books. The one I have is “My Future Listography: All I Hope to Do in Lists”. This book contains list suggestions, some that are silly while others are more serious. I find it is a fun activity and one that doesn’t take a lot of energy while still being a source of potential inspiration. Some examples of prompts include:
-List artists and photographers you’d like to explore
-List moments in your life you don’t want to forget
-List environmentally friendly habits you need to start
-List mistakes to not repeat in the future
Just from the above sample, the lists could be the start of possible material on a non-fiction book for children on a certain artist or inspire a short story of a memorable event. The environmentally friendly habits list could fuel a magazine article, as could the mistakes to not repeat list.
It’s a fun brainstorming exercise that has the potential to become more, should you take up to the challenge:)
