Welcome to the First Friday Freewrite!
If you’re a newcomer, here’s the deal: I’m a writer, and I’ve found that I desperately need accountability. Regular writing exercises help me keep my writing fresh, keep me honest and – most importantly – keep my pen moving. Join me, and post your response to this month’s writing prompt in the comments. It’ll be fun! See below for details…
Here’s how it works: I post a “JUMP LINE,” a short phrase that will serve as a writing prompt, each first Friday of the month.
YOU put pen to paper and write. (I’ll do it, too, of course.) Don’t think. Don’t cross out. (That is wise advice borrowed from Natalie Goldberg in Wild Mind.) Just start with the prompt and see where it takes you.
Then POST YOUR RESPONSE as a comment. (Just click the comment bubble to the right of the Friday Freewrite post title above to leave a reply.)
