Coffee-break exercise: Blank card


30 September 2022
Hand-write a story or message that fits on a blank card in this week’s creative writing exercise

If you’ve got a suitable card to hand, write on that. If not, tear or cut a piece of paper into the size of an average postcard.

Now, writing in pen or pencil, fill the card with a story or message.

The writing can be in any style or form but it must all fit within the confines of the card or paper. So think carefully about what you want to write - using the pen will make you think consciously about each word as you put it down. If there isn’t room on the card to finish what you want to say, you’ll have to leave the end unwritten!
