I’ve just spent a good while doing this exercise from the great, lovely and super-talented Sarah Salway (you know how much I love her work).
To paraphrase you spend ten minutes writing I like to write…, and I don’t like to write… and it’s had some interesting results.
A theme which occurred in different guises regularly was that I DIDN’T like writing what other people are writing. I like writing different.
But I have two favourites.
I like to write things that make people go: Eh? wtf?, but then, aaahhhh!!
I like to write believable, even if it isn’t.
Anyone else going to have a go? I’d love to know your results.
