Wednesday Writing Exercise: StoWriDay

NaNoWriMo—i.e., National Novel Writing Month—is right around the corner. Here’s an exercise from Creative Writing Corner to get you warmed up: write a story in a day.

There are two tacks you can take with this general idea:

  1. Choose a day, a significant day, in the life of a character, and write a story that takes place over the course of just those twenty-four hours.
  2. Take a page from twenty-four-hour play festivals or the 48-Hour Film Project and write a complete story, from beginning to end, in twenty-four hours.

Good luck, and let me know how it goes!
