Do you ever sit down in front of a blank page, after finally finishing all of your procrastination, and then just find yourself staring at the blank page with no idea of what to write or where to start?

There’s a brilliant exercise that I read a few years ago, in an incredibly good and depressingly short lived writing magazine, that was all about how to choose your first word when you’re having trouble finding one.

Rid yourself of writer’s block. Take the challenge.

Characters in Conflict

Two characters in conflict over the setting, place them indoors or outdoors, public or private, where one character wants to go and the other one wants to stay. Make sue to include dialogue and details of setting. Use small paragraphs and have a new paragraph each time there is a new speaker. (Dr. Greg Oaks)

Good writing to all who choose to take the challenge!
