Writing exercise

I recently discovered this exercise from a friend.

Set a timer for ten minutes, choose a letter and write at least twenty words with a minimum of two syllables.

It’s a great idea on three levels.
1. It engages your memory of your vocabulary.
2. The set timer is short and sweet, allowing you to stay focused and start your writing muscle; and
3. It’s fun!

You can do it alone or with a writing companion. Give it a try and let me know how you go! It’s a fun writing exercise that will hopefully help improve your vocabulary.

Here is a photo of mine, if you need some inspiration.

  1. An interesting exercise! I chose ‘S’ and ‘M’ and found I had to think harder with ‘M’, but the words were more interesting! The other thing was in both cases I had over twenty words in four minutes. It would be fun to do it with another person and see what their words were. 🙂


  2. Wow great exercise, I have been thinking about how to get better vocabulary, or at least more accessible and this seems to be a great way!

  3. Wow, Amazing idea, there’s more that we can do to increase our vocabulary that is to make sentences from the words, it makes us remember the word and its meaning when used them in a sentence.
