The blue bean bag slammed onto the board, barely missing the hole. The reverberations from the red bean bag that followed pushed it in. One point for the good guys.
Creativity is like corn hole (or bean bag toss or whatever it’s called in your neck of the woods):
You can score on your own.
Or you can score with the opponent’s help.
Does this happen in any other sport?
It’s rare but not impossible to score alone in corn hole. Likewise, it’s rare but not impossible to write alone.
A good writer is always looking for material and any moment can become a scene.
For me, I may start a piece on my own but others’ work and conversations—both real and imagined—are vital to the end result.
Writing always becomes a team effort, whether the other team members know it or not.
We’re a team here at The Write Practice and today we’re going to work together.
You’ve got two choices:
1. Write for fifteen minutes about some friends at a sporting event.
2.Pick up where a previous writer left off and use it as a launching point for your practice.
