With the temperature set to soar this weekend, let’s warm things up in this week’s creative writing exercise

 

With the temperature set to soar this weekend, let’s warm things up in this week’s creative writing exercise

For five minutes, create a mind-map of words you associate with heat. Sun, radiance, baking, boiling? Hot, torrid, sticky? Cooker, gas, burn? Warm, fire, light, candle? See where your mind association takes you. 

For the next ten minutes, use the last word as the theme to write 200 words of creative writing, in any style.

We hope this sparks your imagination – but try not to let your pen catch fire!
