This exercise may help you uncover the trends and unexpected subject matter of your fiction.
3 AM Epiphany
Write a story backwards. Murder mysteries are told backwards, in a sense. What then? Make sure this does not become simply a device. The structure should be inherently useful to the material, which is good advice for any fiction. Jointly Held Story.
Speak the beginning of a story with someone else. Choose a good storyteller. One person starts the story and continues for a few sentences.
The next person continues for another few sentences, and so on for a while. End when you feel things getting exciting. Let it sit in your memories for a day or so. Be faithful to the growing story and the characters created on the spur of the moment.
The two stories that result from this exercise ought to be quite different from one another. The different etymologies of these two words are instructive. Home originally referred to village or hometown. House has in its earlier meanings the notion of hiding, of enclosing oneself. Now house indicates any house, and home is the place that is central to our notions of ourselves.

Use a home in a story fragment words. Think about the power of rooms kitchens, basements, unfinished attics, walk-in closets on psychology and conversation. In this fragment, make the house a unique participant though a passive one in the unfolding events.
The room need not be in a typical house. Think about all the other rooms we become familiar with—classrooms, office cubicles, public toilets. What are their personalities? How do the more public spaces we inhabit affect our behaviors?
You might consider keeping several characters permanently stuck in different rooms in a house, communicating by shouts, cell phones, intercoms, Dixie cups, or telepathy. In the Belly of the Beast.
Want to join us?
Describe an unusual interior space, one with lots of interesting appurtenances and gadgets sticking out: a submarine, a small plane, a subway tunnel away from the platform, a boiler room in the sub-basement of a high rise building.
Again, do not yield to the easy use of this scene.
The boiler room, for instance, we all expect to hide a creepy axe murderer-type. Put two innocent children in it instead, romping and playing among the glow and roar of the fire and steam vents as if this were a sunny playground their father is the superintendent of the building, and he prefers to keep the kids where he can see them.
Construct a character who is not present. You have many options here: people may talk about this character before meeting him, or after meeting her; you might choose to examine what this character owns, how he or she lives, under what conditions; you might use indirect approaches, like letters or documents that attest to the existence but not presence of the person.
How do we know of people? Examine the ways we build characters in our minds and in our social environments before and after we meet them. Ways of Seeing. Imagine a person with an idiosyncratic way of seeing the world for instance, an occasional drug dealer, who, because of his amateur status, is more than usually prone to seeing danger where there is none; an entomologist who tends to categorize the world dryly, as if seen through a microscope; a world-class athlete whose clarity of vision is almost hallucinogenic.
Have this character witness a traumatic event that does not directly involve him or her. Narrate the event from a first-person point of view, making sure that the perspective is carefully built around the idiosyncrasies of this personality. Also, as a hidden aspect of this character, imagine him or her as some kind of unusual animal.
Create a character around this sentence: Nobody has ever loved me as much I have loved them. Do not use this sentence in the fragment of fiction you write. Resist the temptation this exercise offers for a completely self-indulgent character. Of course, some self-indulgence will be fun with this character. Write about a person you love. This apparently simple instruction may be more difficult than you think. Allow their most beautiful qualities to influence you instead. Take your time.
Choose a new path for yourself. Pave your own road.
Eradicate the parts of yourself that make you so condescending. Represent yourself with dignity, and utilize the more pleasurable neurotransmitters in the brains you occupy.
Educate yourself on the differences between a brain and a mind, and learn about mind over matter. Stop trying to be the mean street kid that you wish you could be. Don't bask in the misconception of your own over-glorified bad-ass reputation. Soften yourself. Age gracefully. Exorcise your own demons so that you might stop being a demon to others. Or persist as you have been all along, but be aware that it is a dead end.
Make that choice right here and right now. Continue to be a neurological parasite, and be driven to extinction by human evolution.
Don't delude yourself into thinking that you can go viral forever. Take into account the history of more than a quarter of a million years of human social change. Prove to yourself that you have nothing to prove to all the more gentle and friendly human feelings and emotions.
Allow yourself to join them. Stop fighting against them. Don't be such a problem child. In The 3 A. The teacher asks students to bring in stories or poems to class, sometimes copied and handed out ahead of time, sometimes not.
The class and its final arbiter usually the teacher judge the merits of the story or poem.

I studied with her for two years in the late s. And she believed that once you understood what an image is, then the form you give it is up to you. Can you teach creativity?
No place for criticism.It might be best to have some stranger observe this conversation, rather than showing us the thoughts of one of the people involved in the conversation, because the temptation to tell us what the conversation is about is so great from inside the conversation. Write a story backwards. We are not expecting this transition nor for that matter the simpler transition from bad hair to mother making clothes.
The key ingredient in all this is time. Use these words as hidden titles for ten paragraphs of prose. And here's a site in Britain to order the book. Remember your mother, Humbleness, and your father, Timidity.
