|Bloggy Battle of Wits|
| So Mr. Marc and I are trying to come up with a good name for our brand new Montreal Improv blog. Your challenge is to come up with some decent names for us to choose from.|
Now if it weren't illegal for us as a registered Quebec business to give away a prize without a lot of hassle, I totally would. So all you can legally get is our gratitude.
I leave it to goodladd to declare winners for the previous two battles.

| Montreal Improv got a little write-up in the Mirror. Huzzah!|
In other news, a new set of improv classes for beginners start at the end of January. Check out the site for all the details.
| I've convinced Emerson to let me run an "Improv For Writers" workshop, on the assumption that short story writers in particular can benefit from doing the sort of character- and plot-work that improv scenes require. I'm doing a pilot version over the next two Sundays, with the hope that I can expand it next semester if it goes well.|
My goal is two spend the first week (two hours) getting people broken into improv basics, and the second week (three hours) focusing more on stuff like the aforementioned character and plot.
So, since this ostensibly started as a blog about improv, does anyone have any suggestions on good exercises for complete beginners?
