April Writing Exercise: Week of 04/07

Free Writing Exercise

Has there been an idea for a short story in your mind? One that you have been ignoring? Or one that you think will be too much work to tackle?

This week, take some time out of your day to free write with this short story idea in mind. Freewriting is a great way to let loose and adhere to come kind of writing schedule. The idea is that you allow your words to tumble out without consciously controlling them. Don't question or construct what comes into your mind. When you read it back initially it can seem jumbled and incoherent but on closer inspection you can see a whole plot line and a lot of questions running underneath. Think of a word to start it and let it flow.
