Re-Call Writing Exercise

The Re-Calling Exercise is a writing tool geared toward igniting a writer's creative flow. There's never too many ways to awaken creative flow. This writing exercise can be applied to fiction, non-fiction and poetry.

Let's go through how the Re-Call Writing Exercise works.

Sit down in your writing place. Get comfortable. Make sure you have everything you'll need. Take food or water. Fruit? Leave the phone outside of the room you're in.Write, at least, two hours before getting up.

Look at anything in the room you're in, for five seconds.

Next, write down, in ten words, everything you remember.

I scanned a notebook for five seconds.

I remember the following: yellow, lined, notes, writing, stuffed, square, dull color, informative, book and name.

The above ten words leads to many paths.

Yellow color inspires an article about ducks, non-fiction. Possible question: Where are the happiest ducks.

Lined, hmm? What or how do lines in fashion help/hurt specific body types?

Notes can play-out in fiction. A crime!

The man stared at me as he spoke into his cell phone. I turned away, fled down another aisle. Two strange females followed me...

The idea has all kinds of possibilities.

Writing means poetry too. Or, your opinion?

All words are sifted through your creative flow, and writing projects happen.

Finally, Re-Call Writing Exercise is to help you, the writer, explore new depths.

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
