Creative Writing: Practice

Think of an “idea” for writing. The bigger and broader and the less firsthand experience you have with this idea the better.  For example, write about life, love, death, homelessness, illness or an idea related to the theme “dark twist” in general terms.  Write fast. Ramble. Think, don’t try to see any one thing in particular.  Put lots of your feelings and ideas. Avoid images and specifics. Think out loud on the page. Don’t focus your mind’s eye on anything.
