Some Exercises for Creative writing

Here are some exercises for you. You can practise them at home. If you want to know what we think about those attempts post them.

1) You find a line from a poem or an ad or some novel. Write it out and keep going. Write the first paragraph of your novel or write for 15 minutes. 
2) Start with a character. Many novels begin with a character. One paragraph.
3) Start with a situation. It should be odd, an intriguing situation. It is the opening paragraph of your novel.
4) Start with a death in the character's family.
5) Start with the wedding ceremony of a character.
6) Start with an image. A telling image which engages the senses of the reader.
