These are good ideas. I'm going to try at least two today.

Thanks for the comment over at Jason's clarityofnight.

Technically I would call these "exercises" or "activities" rather than "games", but they are good ideas.

You might enjoy the "Why Did the Chicken?" game.



When I first moved out on my own, I used to sit in outdoor cafes and write stories about people I saw. I just mentioned this to a friend of mine this week and how much I missed it. It was back in the days when I wrote for fun - what does that tell me?


rel — Let's us know how they go for you. And you're welcome!

Yehuda — What's the "Why Did the Chicken?" game? I'm interested. And you're right: these are absolutely exercises. I call them "games" to emphasize the playful, light aspect, which I feel is so important. And welcome!

Nienke — I hear you. I used to do the same thing. It seems it takes a lot of work to keep that playing/fun energy in our creative expression as time goes by.

Why Did the Chicken...?


Fantastic, Yehuda! You've introduced me to a what looks like a wordy, silly game. Many thanks.


Great ideas there! I will have to try them some time. Especially like the People Writing one. Thanks for sharing!


Bhaswati — You're welcome! Let us know your results with People Writing.
