Just for Fun: Outside the Box

In life, we often find ourselves doing things the same way, day in and day out.  Today let’s try to branch out a little bit.  Just for fun today, let’s take a moment and write something in a different style or genre than usual. It doesn’t have to be a complete work or even something you’d share, but make a solid effort to give it a try.  Do you usually write prose?  How about trying a quick poem or verse from an ancient text your character came across?  Do you usually write horror?  Perhaps today you can write a few paragraphs of your main character’s biography, focusing in on a happier time in his or her life.  Whatever you write, try to experiment with style, genre, form or other parameters. If you are comfortable doing so, share your work in the comments, on the forums or via a link to it on your blog.
