Writing Exercise


I know I’m digging back into my High School days, but a good way to get your writing juices flowing is to have a sentence given to you and then you write a paragraph or three. It’s a nice way to jump start because you just make things up as you go and don’t worry about spelling, grammar or anything else.

So…. lets try one. Post your work in the comments. I may post some of them on here.

“I turned the door handle and entered the room.”

  1. The room was dark. I tripped over an unidentified object. I landed face first. That normally wouldn’t be a problem, but you see I had a decent looking face. Now my nose is smashed up against my face. I look like a pig. My glasses no longer stay on my face. I’m forced to wear contacts.

  2. I couldn’t believe it. You would’t believe it. As a matter of fact, you probably shouldn’t believe it. Believing may just make you a fool. Or would it? My honest opinion on the matter, is that believers are far too often ridiculed for believing. The interesting thing is that the ridicule often comes only after the truth of the subject is uncovered, and well, everyone is aware hindsight is 20/20.

    In the end, it is the cowards who cannot believe, and the truly courageous soldiers of life who put themselves out there and say, without caution, “I can believe that”. So what if it was wrong, or it didn’t happen? How about if it did, and you didn’t believe it? What if believing is the only way to see the truth? Although they may seem it, my theories are far from religious. In fact, this is strictly about a door. A door that I opened. What happened inside that room quite likely did not happen at all. But one thing is for certain, I did enter the room.

    Thanks Aaron, that was fun!
