With Mother's Day on Sunday, this week's creative writing exercise involves thinking about buying flowers

Set the timer for five minutes and create a spider diagram about a flower shop.

Choose part of the diagram and free-write for the next three minutes.

For the remaining time create a flash fiction story or the outline of something longer about a florist who sells flowers that make everything feel better.
