It's our weekly round-up! How is everyone doing? It's hump day and let me tell you, I'm feeling it. Instead of writing an exercise for you guys, I'm going to do some warm ups. These are great if you have a little writers block or just need to get into the writing mood.
Exercise One- Speed Rounds
For these warm ups you will write in stream of consciousness and there is no editing allowed. All you do is write. Oh, and make sure to have a timer or alarm so you aren't checking the clock.
1. Find an object on your desk and write about it for two minutes.
2. Look out the window and write about the first thing you see for three minutes.
3. Write for five minutes about the last book you read.
4. Write for five minutes about your favorite recurring day dream.
5. Write for five minutes about gardening even if you've never done it.
6. Write in the first person for seven minutes about what it's like to be a pirate.
7. Write for seven minutes about yourself from your pet's perspective.
8. Write for eight minutes in the first person about your life in and 1865 log cabin.
9. Write for four minutes about the first day of school.
10. Write for ten minutes about when you realized you wanted to be a writer.
Exercise Two- Kountdown
This is a game from the UK that's super fun and gets your brain in writing mode. Use the website and then use those words to write a prompt with them.
The instructions are on the website and easy to follow. Play a few games to get the juices flowing and let me know how it goes!

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
