Creative Writing Exercise to Learn New Skills

exercise to write better 

Writing Exercises can help you Write Better.

There is nothing like the joy of writing. Most of us would like to be better writers, but we don’t know how. It is such a life-giving skill to develop!

Great writing comes with practice.

Each month we post a new writing tactic with examples.

One of the fun parts of writing is learning new skills.

You will have the opportunity to practice a writing skill that is taught in the post.

These exercises are not about getting it right. They are about experimenting with something new. Please be playful when completing the exercise.

Join us on this journey to become better writers. Come back each month to learn a new skill.

Tell us what you think in comments. We are continually trying to improve both our website and our writing.
