Coffee break exercise: Treat yourself


27 August 2021
Use a moment of self-indulgence to prompt new writing in this week's exercise

Everyone deserves a treat now and then! Use the idea of someone giving themselves a little reward, or a well-deserved moment of pleasure, to spark new writing.

Who will get the treat in your writing? What form does it take? Who are they, what do they like and what's the occasion for this treat?

Write the first paragraph or a few lines of a new piece of writing, conveying the treat and the pleasure it affords.
