I’m supposed to finish writing something at work today but my mind just goes blank every time I try to write. I just can’t seem to focus on the task right now. There are times when I do a few writing exercises to get my creative juices flowing. Sometimes they work; other times they don’t no matter how hard I concentrate. This is one of those days.
I surfed the Net a while ago in search of other writing exercises and came across Jack Kerouac’s creative writing techniques. I’ve never read a book by Jack Kerouac but his writing style (called Spontaneous Prose) is pretty darn interesting. I should try this method one of these days.
