Jumping into writing can be a bit intimidating. I suggest starting with a simple exercise to get the imagination going. This is an exercise I had to come up with to use for students in an ESL class when I had no lesson plan at my disposal while substitute teaching. First, find yourself 8-10 random words. Use a dictionary or thesaurus. Whatever words you choose, stick with them. Once you have your vocabulary list, study them and come up with a title for yourself based upon the cohesiveness of the words. List and number the words from 1-10. Take each word in the order listed and make a sentence. Each successive sentence is to build upon the first sentence creating a very short story.
If you are to do this as a group,then each person should devise his/her own title. Once each one has a title, vote on the best title of the group. Next, each person makes a sentence of a word, taking turns. Follow the same rules as previously stated.
Once you have tried this exercise, you will see how easy it is to get the imagination going. You will also increase your vocabulary exponentially. Soon, you will find yourself writing shorts using this method that are actually very entertaining.
