Ideas for playing with language to spark your mind

Bookmarked The furious music of birds at the zoo by Thomas Sharp (The Poetry Of It All)

1. Try not to use the word ‘I’ or variations thereof – ‘me’, ‘mine’ etc. – for a week…
2. For one month commit to including a sentence of beauty in every matter-of-fact, prosaic email you send…
3. For a week de-gender your conversation. Don’t use ‘he’ or ‘she’, only ‘they’.
