A few years ago, K and I decided to spend the holidays writing and illustrating on short timeframes and basing each piece we do on the other’s previous piece. It was a lot of fun, but we didn’t follow up with it until this past holiday when we had a friend visiting us who also liked to write. This time around we spent an evening writing based on prompts that K gave us, in even shorter time frames.

I don’t know if we produced anything worth seeing in the light of day, but it was a fun group of exercises that I think is good practice for writing quickly and on an arbitrary subject. Maybe I could refine one or two of them and post them up later.
