A fun creative writing exercise:

1. One author writes a beginning prompt. (This could be a teacher, of course.)

2. The second author writes the sentence or paragraph that follows.

3. The first author then adds something more.

4. Following this pattern–a story is built.

This may not result in a remarkable end-product, but the exercise will illuminate different writing techniques.
