Coffee break exercise: Bridges
Bridge the gap between inspiration and a new piece of work in this week's creative writing exercise
Set the timer for five minutes and free-write or create a mind-map on the theme of bridges, real and imaginary.
For the next five minutes, look at what you have written. Underline or circle any sections you particularly like. Can you see the nucleus of a poem or story?
For the remaining time, create the first draft of a poem or flash fiction story.
What makes a good writer? That's a question we all ask. Find out how you match up the checklist of skills that contribute to being a good writer.
