The Story Box

A lovely exercise to get the creative juices flowing is to get a money box and turn it into a story box. Set it up on a shelf or table with strips of paper and pens, then when ever someone visits your house get them to write a sentence down and to post it into the box. At the end of the year or when it is full, open it and look at what is written.

You may find the sentences want to all fit together in a nice way or they may seem like they could never possibly belong in the same story. Your challenge is to make them fit into one story, arrange the strips into three piles, your beginning, middle and end.

Now start writing 🙂
