Sharp drop in temperature this weekend, and we’re all delighted, right? It means you get to stay in all winter and write!

BTW – good luck to all you nanowrimos!

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

  • It was the best fireworks display I’d ever seen…
  • Buying the perfect scarf
  • What warm sand feels like
  • Seeing stars
  • describe someone wearing inappropriate footwear for the time of year

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).
