Coffee break exercise: Tunnels
Tunnel your way to a new story or poem in this week's creative writing exercise
Set the timer for five minutes. Free-write about tunnels – the London Underground, secret passages, escape tunnels.
Set the timer for another five minutes and free-write about a person who is lost in a tunnel. Who are they? When is the story set?
For the remaining time create the beginning of a short story.
Once you've done this week's coffee break writing exercise, think about what makes a good writer. How do you match up?
