The editor’s pick for this week is a writing exercise. Writing becomes a big part of your life when you become an online student. Whether it’s writing e-mails for class, responding to a discussion post, putting together a 12 page paper, or even commenting on your friends wall on Facebook. Sometimes all you need is one word to get you started, and inspired to write. I found this great site to spark your creative writing side, it’s called http://oneword.com. You click on the ‘Go’ button and then you have 60 seconds to write as much as you can based on the word you see at the top of that page. It’s almost a mindless exercise in the sense that you’re not supposed to think about it, you’re just supposed to put the words on the page.
Take a minute now to visit their site. The word for the day is holy. Ready, set, write!
