Sometimes, our words need a little push in order to find their home. This week, your activity is simple: if you typically write nonfiction, take a stab at writing a short story or (!!!) the beginning chapters of a novel. If you typically focus on fiction, try letting your words spill on a specific memory from your childhood.

Or, you could do something completely new - like poetry. 

Whatever you do, write outside your comfort zone and see what happens.

Mail it to your partner by Thursday and send your critique of their work by Saturday.

And if you're feeling particularly brave, post what you've written on our Facebook page.
