For practice I copy master paintings, drawings and lately sculpture.
With a new pen I take it to life drawing or somewhere I can draw from observation; figures, animals, landscape.

Anything I might be prompted to write after reading these fora. Then I might take a picture of it. Example:

When I find words or sequences of letters that seem problematic for me while I’m writing, I add them to a running list I’ve created. Later, I’ll add similar words or words with the same troubling sequences of letters, then I practice them (e.g., renaissance, reconnaissance; axle, axiom, axon, axiom). I keep a master list, and that becomes one of my practice tools. In addition, I will copy from works by favorite prose writers, which has the added benefit of improving syntax and cadence in my own writing.

I found books of quotes works well for me.  Or when listening to the radio the songs titles and artist names.
