I’d like to present to you a writing exercise I will be doing regularly to hone my narrative abilities. I’m calling it “Dramatically Mundane.” What I’ll be doing is taking a regular, everyday action or activity and describe it in more detail than is necessary. Sitting down will become exciting. Washing hands will become sensual. Crossing the street will become amusing. I aim to make boring activities entertaining and interesting. I’ll be starting it this week, most likely.
I haven’t forgotten about the other writing activity I’ve planned. I’m interested in getting that going, too. So, please stay tuned!
