Can any of you anons recommend me some writing exercises? Have you tried any? Did they work for you?

In my mind I'm toying with the idea of developing my own systemic writing exercise. I'm thinking it goes something like this;
Take a rather large subject, for example The Matter of Britain, and all of it's many different stories and characters and places, and write a prose sketch of each, then write each of them multiple times in different forms of poetry i.e. blank verse, heroic couplets, ballads etc..
Once I've exhausted a subject, move on to another, like say, the President's of The United States and repeat the aforementioned process.

It doesn't even need to be based on stories at all, I could attempt the same thing with as many rhetorical devices as I could remember, or even numbers fcs!

Yeah 100% first story I've ever written. But I appreciate the feed back. All of it makes a lot of sense when brought up. I use to write letters to my ex and I use a journal to try and work with my anxiety. So I thought it might be fun to throw a random story idea I had into words.

Laws of Manu 9:40

Katha Upanishad 2:5

>Read the Old Testament
>Full of God being a schizo and telling people how to fence in their cattle
>Ok maybe the New Testament will clear things up
>Read New Testament
>Gospels contradict each other, epistles quote scripture that doesn't exist and say the world should have ended already
>Ok maybe the church fathers will clear things up
>Start reading the Church Fathers
>Ignatius of Antioch says the Ephesian church is eternal (Ephesus doesn't exist anymore), Justin Martyr believes a bunch of bullshit legends and misquotes both scripture and Plato, and so on
>Ok maybe some modern apologetics will clear things up
>GK Chesterton is pure rhetoric, CS Lewis' arguments collapse immediately, Tim Keller gets basic factual stuff wrong, NT Wright just assumes it's all true and starts talking about how to organise churches
Is Christianity, dare I say it, wrong?

I tried using Windscribe with USA, Luxembourg and UK, but the price didn't change, even when I changed the actual currency. How come?

1 Enoch 48:1-10

>2 And in that hour that Son of Man was named In the presence of the Lord of Spirits, and his name, before the Head of Days.

>3 Even before the sun and the constellations were created, before the stars of heaven were made, His name was named before the Lord of Spirits.

>4 He will be a staff for the righteous, that they may lean on him and not fall; he will be the light of the nations, and he will be a hope for those who grieve in their hearts

>5 All who dwell on the earth will fall down and worship before him, and they will glorify and bless and sing hymns to the name of the Lord of Spirits

>6 For this reason he was chosen and hidden in His presence, before the world was created and forever.

A non-inspired text talking about a divine Son of Man who existed since creation? Written over 100 years before Jesus? Could this have possibly had any impact on the early followers of Jesus? Unlike what I've been told again and again that Jesus' followers couldn't have been influenced by other sources in their views of divinity and divine figures other than the Father? Is such a thing possible?

Word! I started pretty easy with Meditations a few years ago, then tried Nietzche right after but couldn't do it so I put him back on my shelf. I'm reading this Emerson anthology right now and I can understand it pretty clearly, so here's hoping Nietzche won't sound so convoluted this time around

It's not a bad idea. I don't quite get the whole "where do I start?" thing that /lit/ is obsessed with.
