5 Minute Creative Writing Exercise
STEP 1: Write down the first word you can think of at the top of the page
STEP 2: Set a Timer for 5 minutes
STEP 3: Write down a word that has the least in common with the previous word you wrote down
STEP 4: Repeat until the time is up!
The goal isn’t to come up with as many words as possible. Instead, you want to focus on picking unique words that have the absolute least in common from the last word.
Think of this drill as a mental HIIT workout. At first it may seem difficult, but over time, it will become increasingly easier and you’ll start to stretch your imagination – and become more creative!
