Coffee break exercise: Clocks
Can you spare a few minutes? It's time for a new creative writing exercise
Set the timer for five minutes and free-write or create a mind-map on the theme of clocks. Think about egg-timers, sundials, grandfather clocks and body-clocks.
Take a few minutes to look at what you’ve created. Underline or circle anything you particularly like. For the remaining time, create the first draft of a poem or flash fiction story.
If you're interested in flash fiction, read John Dufresne's expert advice on writing very short stories.
