Writing Exercise Grab-bag

This is a list of things I want to try to stretch me writing muscles with, just to keep the ol' brain ticking properly, even if I do get distracted from writing by RL and what not for vast swathes of time. Some are fandom-specific, others are not -- they're just random things that at some point I decided would be good things in principle to write, but discounted at one point or another because they were too damn hard. Which is a terrible reason, right? Right.

The plan is to wander about this list, grab things and write them in no particular order. If you see something you'd really like to read, or if you have the perfect fandom for a non-fandom-specified exercise, let me know and I will probably oblige! And, of course, if something on this list strikes you as intriguing and you want to give it a go, please, be my guest. As I said, this list is for me, and not necessarily things anyone else will find any interest in, but I obviously won't mind if people do. :-)
