Creative writing coffee break: the seed of inspiration
Set your timer for five minutes. Create a mind map or spider diagram with the word ‘seed’ in the middle. Has it given you any ideas?
Imagine holding a seed in your hands. What is it like? Is it tiny as a speck of brown dust or is it large enough to fill your cupped hands? What will it grow into? Set the timer for five minutes – write. Allow your imagination to run riot!
For your remaining five minutes think about a seed you planted as a child. What happened to it?
Are any of these seeds offering creative shoots for you?
