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

  • legs
  • The things you took with you when you left home
  • A hat box
  • Your grandmother
  • Crosswords

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).
