Language


Take a sentence and rewrite it five times, jumbling up the word order. Don't think about it, do it as fast as you can. It's not about making sense, but about feeling free to write nonsense, and you'll find you get interesting results anyway. It helps you put language together in surprising ways, breaking through your own cliched phrases, and finding new meanings, great for poetry and prose. A good one to use if you get stuck on a sentence and feel like you can't move on, just start jumbling it around.

HAVE FUN!
