Writing Poorly to Write Well

Sometimes it's good exercise to write something silly and easy just to get in a little extra wordsmithing practice. Here's an example:

"The bouncing birds, black of wing, hardly ever stop to sing.
Rolling bears, round of paws, snuffle with enormous jaws.
When the mountains rose above, hearts aflame with blazing love,
Climbed the peaks with boots to grip
Past the rising freezy slip."

Nonsense! Foolish silly stuff. But it thaws the writer's block so you can get on with what you really want to do.

And what is that? Do you know what you want to do?

Okay, now do it!

Write on!
