Let's Spark our Imagination

Imagination Sparks Blogfest
Click on picture to go to Clancy's Blog and the list of participants.

Thank you to Clancy for coming up with this great idea! Here's one of my all-time favorite writing exercises:

  1. Pick a random novel off your shelf
  2. Get your notebook ready
  3. Let the book fall open to any page
  4. Copy out the first full sentence on that page 
  5. Take a deep breath, sharpen your pencil/open your pen
  6. Off you go, continue on from that line and write for at least a page or a set amount of time. 
I came up with this one myself on one very rainy day. I hope it helps! Now I'm off to see what everyone else uses to get their juices flowing... 


  1. That is a good one. Might be really hard too! Thanks so much for posting the idea.

  2. I sometimes will open three pages at random when writing poetry. This is a good one; I will have to try it!

  3. So fun! I've tried something similar before and enjoyed it.

  4. can't wait to let my imagination run wild :D

  5. Love this exercise! It's kind of the reverse idea of the one I did on my blog (Famous Last Words). What fun!
