Writing exercises

Our next few exercises are:
  • a character study (300 words)
  • an argument (500 words of dialogue)
  • a description of a house (200 words)
  • a descriptive piece with no adjectives (300 words)
Since I've thought about writing a book I'm finding this sort of exercise a bit easier to get started on. I can think of 'my' character and what he's like, the sort of arguments he might have, what kind of house he might live in (I might have a problem there!) and how I could describe something in his world without the use of adjectives. It puts the different exercises into a context, which I find helps.
