I really want to get into the habit of writing each day. I've been reading a few tips with exercises but so far I haven't found many that I like. The only one so far is a website that provides dialogue starters, beginning of sentences, and so on. I use this to start and write about random things. I also did some freewriting but as you might have read in my previous thread, I don't see much use in that either. So... I was wondering, is it a good idea to just work on ideas I have? I have quite a few ideas in my mind that I would love to work on. As a beginner, I know that probably most of that work will not be up to standards but I don't mind. To me, it's more about making my brain think that I'm a writer. Maybe later, when I reread my work, I find some hidden gems... In short... Is working on short stories a good practice, if you do it on a daily base? Or should I consider exercises?
