Writing 101- Day 1:

To get started, let’s loosen up. Let’s unlock the mind. Today, take twenty minutes to free write. And don’t think about what you’ll write. Just write.


 Whhhaaaa??!?!?! *pause*

Here is my life in a nutshell:

I adore spontaneity, providing it is carefully planned.

So when the FIRST day of Writing 101 says ‘Free Write’ for 20 mins, I sit for 20 minutes while strategically thinking of a topic that sounds ‘free’. LoL!! What is my life tho?!

My brain is constantly filled with so much random goodness that it won’t all fit in a blog post or at least it wouldn’t make any sense. LoL… With that being said, allow me to introduce you to my brain through pictures rather than words in this first blog. I assume that this approach will be much more appealing and entertaining… LoL!!

    Aaaah! I love this. I’m not alone! 😀
    I tried this activity, and it took about 10 minutes for me to focus to write, and then the next ten minutes everything I wrote was so damn random, that I was just like, “yeaaaaah, NOT posting this random stuff/proof I have ADD”.

      LoL! My post would have been random as well. My followers would swear that I was half crazy. LoL. Did you go back and write it or do pictures instead?

        I just wrote it, read it, laughed and decided not to post it. :p

    I love that your stream of consciousness was intertwined with not only words but pictures too! Are you a visual learner by any chance? I feel that you would be! So often are thoughts come to us not only in word form but also in pictures! Lovely post great to read and see :).

        I had a feeling of that just from the way you put this whole piece together :). Can’t wait to see your pieces evolving throughout this course.

    For real though… especially when the ‘plot twist’ is that we were supposed to actually post that stream of rambles on our blog.

    I struggle with having many ideas and not being able to GET THEM OUT properly as well. 😉

      Yea, that was a serious ‘Plot Twist’. LoL…
      I enjoyed your post.

    Ha ha ha! Too funny, I’m digging it all. I found myself doing the same thing – even now I’m stalling on hitting the ‘publish’ button – writing for 20 minutes then thinking I should do another 20 minute ‘free write’ and choose between the two to see which is better. 😉 Prior to that I wanted to think of a topic to free write about. I’m struggling to let the free write just be… Well done! 😀

      LoL! Yes! In the beginning it seemed fun to ‘free write’ but then I started thinking about ‘not thinking’ and it threw me off track. LoL. So I figured that I couldn’t go wrong with pictures. I’m glad that you enjoyed it.
      I like your idea to ‘free write’ twice and choose from those. haha. Let me know when you post yours so that I can read it. 🙂

        Ah very behind I am, going to hopefully catch up by Wednesday but I did post the first assignment! Thanks for asking. I will pay you a visit here in a few and see how things are coming along. 🙂 I gotta try not to let ‘perfection syndrome’ do the opposite and screw things up. 😉

        I understand. I got behind last week so I’m trying to get back on track.
