Standalone Writing Exercises

So, if you’ve been following me for a while, you will have seen that I did month-long daily writing exercises in October and February — links to which are here.

However, I’ve also done a few standalone exercises on days I’ve been bored which haven’t been compiled yet. Which, of course, gives me a golden opportunity to compile them for the first time here.
