Writing Exercises

Writing exercises I did at the Haven.

So here are two quick caps I did as a writing exercise at the Haven.  The exercise for the Linux cap was to make a cap with 20 words or less.  I have no idea where I found the image, but it played into an idea that had been rumbling around in my head for awhile. My idea was a modern day spell caster having his 'spellbook' on a laptop, instead of in a dusty leather bound book.  The CSI cap was all about 'proof reading'.  The idea what that a proof reading mistake leads to a transformation.  I really have no idea where the idea came from, but it seemed to work for th exercise.


  1. 20 words or less, hmm.. sounds like a fun challenge and who knows, I may have already done it. lol. But you did a great job and I love the idea behind it. Sounds like it could be mixed with that iphone app idea Dee had a few weeks back.

    I've seen a typo or miss-wording as the cause of the TF, Although I've never tried that out. (as far as I can remember.)The story for it is great and feels like the beginning of a bigger story.

    I've done some self imposed writing exercises. Things like my music caption, writing out the end before the beginning, Two sides of the story, Emulating someone Else's style, etc. Lately If I find I'm starting to fall out of making captions, I try to do something new and keep my creative juices flowing. It's helped so far.

  2. Linux but tattoo! All said! haha!

    The CSI was very witty and smart. I liked it.
