Warm up and get writing

Free Writing

For five minutes, write non-stop: don’t lift your fingers from the keyboard or your pen from the page. Just keep writing. Don’t stop to ponder or make corrections or look up a word’s meaning in the dictionary. Just keep writing.

If you find yourself stuck for something to say, just keep repeating the last word you have written, or write, “Why am I doing this? This is a rubbish exercise“ or the last word you wrote again and again until a fresh thought emerges.

Be strict, finish your sentence at 5 minutes and stop writing.

When can I use free writing?

  • As a warm up – should be creative, not factual
  • As a way to develop or close an idea
  • As a way to move forward when you are stuck
