Set your timer for five minute intervals. When it rings, move on to the next topic. Don’t think too hard.

  • A gold ring on every finger
  • Leaves, turning
  • List things that are red
  • The last time you held an animal
  • a polo neck jumper

25 minutes and you’re done!

The Rules

  1. Write whatever you like prompted by each practice topic – fiction, non fiction, gobbledegook. It doesn’t matter, because these words are not “official”. Write without over-thinking, or stopping.
  2. Keep going, especially if it’s difficult, but not if it will make you give up.
  3. After five minutes switch to the next topic (unless you are completely swept away by something).
