Today's exercise is one a friend and I have used as a pick-me-up when the work of writing overshadowed the joy of writing. It's simple. Write the worst scene you possibly can. Cliches. Clunky dialogue. Bad jokes. Throw in anything you like and really stink up the page. When you've finished, read it over--out loud if you like--and let your inner editor chew on it awhile so you can get the real work done.
