Every once in a while I post a writing assignment, just something small to get you writing - or AT LEAST thinking about writing.
One of my favorites is 6 word stories.
The concept is this: try to write 6 words that tell a whole story so that the reader can picture much more than you've said in their minds - the scene, the before, the after, the emotion, etc.
