Coffee-break exercise: Embrace


01 October 2021
Write about a specific hug in this week's creative writing exercise

Whatever style or form you prefer to write – fiction, non-fiction, poetry, script – concentrate on one specific embrace. Try to give a sense in your narrative or impressions of what makes this embrace stand out: the circumstances; the people involved; the physicality of the embrace and the emotional impact.

Flow write for ten minutes, and then spend another ten minutes editing your words into lean, effective, and affecting, writing.
