Coffee break exercise: Libraries
Libraries are a writer's natural habitat - and the prompt for this week's creative writing exercise!
Set the timer for five minutes and free-write or create a mind-map about libraries. Think about libraries in old country houses, your school library or the one in your local town.
Free-write for the next five minutes about anything that could happen in a library. For the remaining time, create the first draft of a poem or story.
Read novelist Milly Johnson's account of how her writing career got off the ground thanks to her local library.
