Five Steps To A Fun-For-Writers Saturday Morning- Even for Kids!
1. First, get out a blank page. Feel free to open a new document on your confuser, get out a pen and a blank piece of paper, or even whip out your old-school typewriter, really fun after you get the ink from changing the ribbon off your hands.
2. Next, write the first word that comes to your mind. When I did this exercise this morning, the first word I thought of was “Shake.” Why not?! So I wrote it down.
3. Then, the hard part: write another word. Why is this hard? Because for this exercise to work, the second word must be random and disconnected from the first. Randomness rankles your perfectionistic inner writer. Do it anyway!
