Writing Exercise – Lists


Today’s exercise once again comes from…

518-ogA2vXL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA300_SH20_OU02_I am really enjoying most of these exercises, the odd ones do not really seem to help or fit with my writing style but overall it has been a good investment. So today’s exercise is…


Now obviously you know me and how much I love lists so this would seem to be a really easy one not because I could not come up with a list for each one but because I would not know where to stop lol.

I am going to cheat slightly here, as you know we all get awards then struggle to come up with 7 interesting things about you over and over again so I am going to do a couple of lists here now then use the other suggestions to do my 7 things on awards posts and link them back to here.

List your favourite childhood books

Okay in no particular order…

The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien

The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton

Wish For a Pony by Monica Edwards

The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

The Worst Witch by Jill Murphy

James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

List some metaphors for sunset.  The sunset looked like…

…a dissolving rainbow sliding across the sky.

…a princess colour scheme swatched against the clouds.

….a gossamer cascade from the Goddess’s gown.

Okay so thats mine done I would love to see a few lists in comments from you all pick one and share and also feel free to pinch the idea’s for using on awards post 😀

  1. I’m one of those people who doesn’t have a favorite book. The only thing I love (and I love it more now than I did as a child) is Beauty and the Beast.


  2. I LOVE lists! Enjoyed reading yours too. Okay, a list.

    Favourite traditional sweets:

    Toffee bon bons (the actual toffee, hard but then chewy kind)
    Rhubarb and custards
    Mint humbugs
    I used to like rainbow sherbert…

    Actually I could go on and on with a list like that! 🙂


      1. Cola Cubes! Yum! Pineapple chunks are also good… I love too many! 🙂 I hated it when they made it illegal to ask for a quarter! Thank god they quashed that rule!
