Introduction to the Daily Prompt 5 minute Freewrite
Freewrite - what the heck is that you ask. Well, it is the opposite of a well thought out, highly edited, and grammatically correct piece of writing.
Freewriting is to set a timer for a certain amount of time and write. Without stopping. Without correcting anything. Without worrying if what we write is good or bad. Nobody cares.
The point of the freewriting session is to get out of our heads and tap into our creative self - allow things to flow. Sometimes, great writing will result. Well, and sometimes - not. The point is to get into a daily (or however often you can) habit of writing.
@improv and I have come up with a plan.
- We are going to take turns to come up with a daily writing prompt.
- Set your timer to 5 minutes.
- Start writing
- Publish your piece
- Use the hashtag #freewrite
- Copy and paste your URL into the comment section of the prompt post.
- Or, if you don't want to publish your freewrite, just copy and paste.
The prompt might be one word, several words or a phrase. Make sure to include them somewhere in your writing.
Or it might be a question or a statement. No need to include those in the text unless you want to.
And since this is a freewrite for free writers - in the end, do what you feel like that day. But share with us!!
WE don't have much voting power, but we will do our best to upvote your comment.
We might think of other rewards. Stay tuned.
Each daily prompt will have a link to this post - in case you forget how it all works.
