Here we are, starting the week, intentions and promises to our writerly selves made anew. Let’s sow some more seeds.

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

  • Conkers
  • Grandmother
  • chopping an onion
  • write a love letter
  • play

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).
