Freewriting is an exercise in which you write whatever your thoughts are in no particular order. It is often used as a brainstorming technique to generate ideas or as a way to overcome writer’s block.
To do a freewriting exercise, simply set a timer for a certain amount of time (usually between five and ten minutes) and start writing. The goal is to keep your hand moving and not to stop writing until the timer goes off. Don’t worry about grammar, spelling, or neatness — just write whatever comes into your head.
If you get stuck, try writing prompts such as “I wish I could _____” or “If I could have one superpower, it would be _____.”
