This week I played catch up. I have a lot of lists on the go at the moment. I always do, but this month I’m juggling two different challenges that run for November, an online course, and the rest of my life. Oh, yes, you say, I know how that is. Some days I just want to give it all up and watch TV until I die. But I don’t of course, because then I’d be dead before my heart had stopped beating. Ignore your lists for a few minutes. Let’s write some words.

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

  • What would it be like to work on a bin lorry/garbage truck?
  • What bare trees expose in winter
  • Things that are upsetting
  • baby
  • Grey hair

Enjoy your weekend, everyone!

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).
