* A page of links for writing experiments I’ve developed myself.
* DIY: write your own exercises. Task yourself on them, and trade them with your friends.

* And join or start a writing group. Get your writing read by other writers and readers: it can only gain from it (though do be careful about the committee mindset that can develop: you can’t please everyone). If you are interested in being published, be aware that writing that has been tried on good readers is writing that has a greater chance of being published.
