Let your pen cast a spell in our seasonally spooky coffee break creative writing workout

Set the timer for five minutes and jot down any childhood memories of Halloween OR write the word Halloween on a piece of paper, draw a circle round it and then create a mind map. Don’t worry if your mind makes unusual connections – let the ideas flow.

For the next ten minutes underline any words or phrases you particularly like and see if you can create a poem or flash fiction story – or both!
