I have taken a leaf out of Vikki at the View Outside’s book and have invested in a couple of books on writing. This one just arrived in the post this morning.
Now obviously I can’t share the whole book with you but what I intend to do for the next few Thursday is to give you a brief summary of one of the chapters and the attached exercise and show you what I came up with. There are 58 chapters in total but I only intend to do half a dozen or so on here picked at random then I shall do an overall review of what I thought of the book as a whole in terms of structure, exercises and then if you like what you have read you can pop along to amazon or your local bookshop and get your own copy.
I have not had much chance to look through so far but the quick skim I did have it looks fascinating and as all the exercises are designed to be completed in 5 minutes then there is no excuse for not doing them, of course this does mean I need to pick up a new note book specifically for these exercises lol.
So what do you guys think are set exercises a good thing to warm up the brain and push you for your comfort zone?
