A writer's workout gets you up to 90 minutes of continuous writing. You will be guided by prompts every 12 minutes. This is the weightlifting equivalent of the writing life. It's a great exercise for beginning and advanced writers. I cover different aspects of the writing process: action, dialogue, flashback, foreboding, adding detail, perspective.
I got the idea to do this after I participated in a playwriting challenge organized by theliteralchallenge.com. These challenges are worldwide and cover various genres. My workout is focused on the connection between brain and paper.
Think of me as someone who takes you by the hand when you are writing in your journal and guides you to unexpected places. It is my job to come up with prompts that are both challenging and logical. The idea is to get you to think on your feet and keep going. The prompts should be challenging but also somewhat logical. If we start off as a hitchhiker in the high desert for instance, the next scene will most likely take place in car or a truck, but not in a medieval Czech chapel decorated with human bones. Unless there's a spaceship involved, in that case.. Well, you get the idea. My most important goal is that it should be fun.
