A few weeks back at The Writer’s Workshop we wrote for 20 minutes on things we do. Or don’t do any longer.

My list of three things I used to do all the time, but don’t do any more:

  1. Go to the gym
  2. Help build Habitat Houses
  3. Act onstage

And the three things I now do all the time:

  1. Write in blogs
  2. Watch basketball on TV
  3. Ride my bike

From there, the writer can choose whatever structure they want. Write about one. Write about them all. Write why you don’t do those things you used to do all the time. I chose to contrast these things. You can read my first draft entry at ronseybold.com, in the essays section.
