Writing Exercise

Below are three quirky headlines pulled from the web yesterday. Using one of these headlines as the basis for your fictional piece, write at least 200 words:

1. Zombie protesters win payout
2. Thief hands himself in after Bible reading
3. Bearded man becomes online star

Have fun with this! Things aren't always what they seem. If you post your results, I'll post mine.

  1. Susan,

    I followed you over from amazon. I'm not a writer but I like to play with words. You've got a lot on this website and I'm going to take some time and check it out. I love that you have a book review section. I'm on my way to work the graveyard shift tonight, so this exercise my have to marinate for a couple of days or more.

  2. Shelly,

    Welcome! You don't have to think you are a writer to enjoy playing with words! So glad you followed me over. I look forward to reading anything you choose to post.

    By the way, if you read a good indie-written novel and would like to suggest it for a review, please don't hesitate.
