I want to get better at writing, and I have an idea. Do you have any suggestions?
I mentioned a few days ago that I like to take 10-minute breaks between school subjects during the day. (I’m homeschooled.)
Lately, I’ve been watching videos on the internet or Fluthering to let my brain rest… But I get so wrapped up in it that I waste a ton of time.
So here’s my idea: Some sort of free writing project. Just writing whatever I can get from my brain to the keyboard, just to get the juices flowing. No judgement then and there. I’ll come back and critique my stuff a week or so later. Artists do stuff like this with their sketches, and I’ve heard of writers doing it, too.
Now, I don’t care about getting good at writing. I’m just tired of the love/hate relationship I have with it, and I think maybe this will get me over a hump to be able to think clearly in my writing.
So here’s my question: Do you have any suggestions as I get started? Any writing prompts/projects/challenges to get my juices flowing? I really don’t think it matters what I write, just that I’m writing something.
Thanks for all your help, jellies!
