Coffee-break exercise: Harvest


18 September 2020
Relate the idea of harvest to your writing in this week's exercise

Spend a few moments thinking about the idea of 'harvest' and how it relates to your writing. It might be literal and you're writing about growing things. It might be metaphorical – how have the writing seeds you've planted this year grown?

For five minutes, write down all the harvest-related thoughts, words, lines and phrases that spring to mind.

Next, go through what you've written and highlight what you think works best.
