Welcome to the Writing Workout, the place for exercises that get your scribbling into shape, from the creator of Paragraph Planet.

On the site, you'll have the choice of small exercises, against the clock, to help kickstart writing ideas. The results only go to you, so feel free to experiment.

I've also started a 'junior' section, if you have any budding writers in your family, so why not suggest it to them too?

If you like the site, please let me know via here, or Twitter, and I'll add more exercises. And if you really like the site, then you can always help support it via the Ko-Fi page (which is in the name of Writing-Workout's parent site, Paragraph Planet.

I'd welcome your feedback (there's a contact page), feel free to forward me your results, and if you like the site, please spread the word across social media


You'll need to enter your email ON THE ACTUAL EXERCISE PAGE to get your results. For privacy reasons, they don't come to me, and I also don't grab your email from that, so relax and write whatever you want!




The newsletter will allow me to send you occasional updates about the site, including new exercises or features.

Please note: The newsletter is SEPARATE from emailing yourself your results. You will need to enter your email before any exercise. (After completing this form, you will be returned to the home page).
