Does anybody fancy a regular exercise?
On another board I am on they have a 10-words exercise every week, and it is something to look forward to, and has spawned some of my better efforts.
How about a regular word-cloud exercise? They've been popular before...
If they catch on I can try posting them regularly, maybe weekly, or maybe fortnightly, if that seems more like the right spacing...
Anyway, if I am going to do it regularly I'll need some standard text, let's see:
Study the cloud and try to find groups of words which inspire you to some sort of poem. You do not need to use every word. And you can adjust their exact forms if you like (run -> ran, train -> trained, horse -> horses etc)
There is no end-date for the exercise.
