Writing Exercise – Put Pen to Paper and Write!

Freewriting Frees the Mind

Stuck?  Freewriting is a great way to free up your mind so creativity can start to flow.

Taught in classrooms and seminar halls all over the world, freewriting releases your thoughts from all the rules, clutter, and self-critique that can paralyze the most prolific writer.

What does freewriting entail?  It’s simple.  Put pen to paper and write!

For five minutes, DO NOT

  • lift your pen from the paper
  • think about spelling or rules of grammar
  • attempt to control what you are thinking – freely release everything in your head onto the page
  • pause for any reason – continuous writing is key!

Commit to freewriting and you will see a dramatic change in what you write and how much you write each day.

Write freely.
