You are standing in front of The Round Cage at the Maryland Zoo and, in an unexpected turn of events, all the animals escape from this cage. Write a story and explain what you see.
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.
