You are listening to your music library and one song has caught your attention. Write about the song that brings back important memories of people, place, time or event in your life.
A focused Free Write is a strategy intended to encourage ideas without concern for the conventional rules of writing. The goal is to make writing easier and more comfortable while speaking new ideas onto a page. Remember, free writing doesn’t mean to rush or create sloppy work on purpose. Follow these guidelines:
- Write nonstop for a set period of time (5–10 minutes). Let your ideas flow onto the paper.
- Ignore the urge to correct as you write, you can always come back and edit later.
- Write what you picture in your mind by using words that describe.
- Do not judge or censor what you are writing. Allow yourself to imagine.
