Find a route into your creativity in this week's writing exercise

Set the timer for five minutes. Make a list of the regular journeys you have taken through your life – e.g. visiting grandparents, going to school or work.  How did you get there? What landmarks did you pass? Write about the worst journey you’ve ever had.

For the remaining time, write about something unexpected happening on a familiar journey. What if you decided to take a different route? What if an unfamiliar door led you back into the past?
