Wx3 Writing Exercise & Inspiration – How To

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Step 1 – Clear your mind. Take a deep breath. Relax.

Step 2 – Open a new Word doc, or Notepad page, or grab a piece of paper & a pen.

Step 3 – Look at the picture for 60 seconds & then write whatever comes to you – dialogue, story, log line, idea, concept, emotion, senses, etc..

When you are done…

Save it and put your writing away. Let it seep, brew, stew, and simmer. Next time you need inspiration or an added boost to your current work – you’ll have a file full of these.

And, it will add to your habit of writing – boom!

My Wx3…

It’s quiet. Too quiet. I can’t even hear the horses or cattle. Something’s wrong, but I’m not sure what and I can’t help but feel a slight welling of panic in my throat.

The crickets are whirring, but they’re not panicked.

There’s a smell of fresh grass and mist-covered flowers. It’s crisp and cool and this should be a relaxing walk.

The road ahead, it’s open… so I think I’ll keep walking, but behind me…

I wonder what that silence means?

Who is following me — or worse, what? I’m the only person for miles — I did that on purpose. So, is it even human?
