Hi all, I was advised by a friend of mine (a university English tutor) that 'free-writing' is a great idea to improve your overall writing as well as come up with initial ideas on plot or character etc. The idea is that you set yourself a time limit (I tried 15mins), find yourself a quiet, comfortable place to work, start the timer and DO NOT STOP writing until the time is up. Even if you write random words or 'I don't know what to write' you must keep writing the entire time. I thought this was a great idea and have tried it a couple of times however don't seem to be achieving anything from it personally. Perhaps it is because I am over-thinking it and expecting more from it than is realistic. Anyway - would be interested to hear if anyone has ever tried this before and what, if any, successes you have had through it. Thanks!
