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
- Grey hair
Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
25 minutes and you’re done!
- 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.
- Keep going, especially if it’s difficult, but not if it will make you give up.
- After five minutes switch to the next topic (unless you are completely swept away by something).
