The exercise – Take one minute to write a single sentence. Don’t think too hard and don’t worry if it doesn’t make sense. Here are some ideas to get you started.
Write a sentence about:
an animal – The three legged dog hoped across the road and seemed determined to enter the grounds of the palace.
an inanimate object – There was a chair covered in glitter sitting at the corner of the room where they wanted to put the mirror.
sex – They hadn’t had sex in the longest time and Sarah didn’t really know why this bothered her so much.
the weather – Every time they took a vacation in this place the weather was always great with blue, sunny skies and a light sea breeze that perfumed the air.
a place – It was the most beautiful town she had ever been too, the houses all looked beautiful painted in the same earthy tones and with flower baskets hanging from windows.
a habit – He always rotated his pen through his fingers like a cheer leader with a baton.
yourself – I love it when family is together, we can laugh and be silly with each other, say the most ridiculous things and we all think every thing is hilarious.
water – The lake was frozen, the icy water shone with dark blue reflexes under the bright moon.
love – They thought they loved each other but what they felt was beyond love, they had become one in all the years they spent together.
a season – Spring has yet to arrive as winter continues sharp and cold into the month of April.
death – I am not sure why death is such a taboo – there is only one guaranteed thing when you are born and that is that you will die.
a dull sentence – She brushed her teeth, showered, dried her hair, put her clothes on, applied her make up, had breakfast, left the house and caught the bus to work.
beginning with a name – Andrew knew that he would never return to this place again and he was more than happy about that.
a silly sentence – whenever I eat pickles I get the giggles and everyone looks at me and says how childish I can be!
a sentence beginning with an expletive – S**t, I have cut myself again on this stupid paper dispenser and my hand really hurts.
a sentence beginning with ‘How‘ – How is it possible that you are looking at it and not seeing what is in front of you?
I have done all the sentences suggested by the author so again it took more than five minutes.
