Don't hit the wall with your writing – be inspired to create two new pieces of flash fiction in our latest creative writing exercise

Set the timer for five minutes and create a mind map. Is the word 'wall' positive or negative? Is it a wall that you can’t see like writer’s block? Does the wall protect you from something bad or are you separated from something (or someone) you want? Is it a creative wall full of pictures or inspirational posters?

Pick two ideas – ideally one positive and one negative – and use the remainder of the time to create two linked flash fiction stories.
