Freewrite: 6 February 2018
Our first unscheduled Writing Club freewrite! The goal today is 5 Minutes.
What is freewriting?
Freewriting is an exercise in which a person writes continuously for a set period of time without regard to spelling, grammar, or topic. It is a technique used by writers to generate ideas and connect concepts, dissolve writer’s apathy and writer’s block, and let your stream of consciousness emerge. During freewriting, you put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard), start your timer, and write. From the beginning of the predetermined time til the end, the goal is to keep writing, even if all you have to say is “I don’t know what to say.”
Feel free to post your freewrite below (if it’s appropriate) or simply comment to let us know how it went!
