Writing Hint #30: Make a list

This activity can be used in a variety of ways:

  • It could be used as a warm up writing exercise to get your brain working.
  • It could be used when the dreaded writer’s block comes to visit.
  • It could be used as the basis of a blog post.

So it is one thing to say “make a list.”

What kind of list?

Below I have listed some things you could make a list about – but really, the list is limited only by your imagination.

A list of possible list topics:

  1. Make a list of your favourite foods.
  2. Make a list of your favourite drinks.
  3. How many birds can you list?
  4. Make a list of things you did last week.
  5. Rank on a list the best ten books you have read.
  6. Make a list of the songs you can sing (or whistle) from memory.
  7. In alphabetical order, make a list of the cities (or countries) you have visited.
  8. Make a list of people you know whose names start with A or C or F or P.
  9. How many names of countries can you list?
  10. Make a list of writers who have influenced you.
  11. Make a list of the bloggers who regularly comment on your blog.
  12. Make a list of mountain names.
  13. How many oceans and seas can you list?
  14. List the most important ten events in your life.
  15. List the things you wish to accomplish today or this week.

Good writing.
