Welcome to the WRITERCIZE blog, dedicated to writers at all ages and stages who need a little help putting the pen to the paper. Whether you are a student, an amateur, a published author, a freelancer or a teacher, I sincerely hope you are able to find some inspiration here, and pass a little my way as well!
Here's the plan - I post an idea or writing exercise daily Monday through Thursday. Exercises will be relatively quick, think (generally) in the range of 5-20 minutes of your time. My intent is to plant ideas and work on the difficult but necessary practice of choosing words wisely (pruning, perhaps). The main idea is - repetition breeds expertise.
I ask you to break out the jersey and writercize alongside me. I would love to see your comments - share the outcome of the exercise, coach me with feedback on what would make it even better, or tell me about your experience. Share the ideas with a friend or with your students and pass the site forward.
So, sharpen your pencil, dust off your keyboard and join me on this linguistic journey.
