The topic will be different but the rules are the same as in the first week.
In short, a topic is announced and,upon reading that topic, you are to write
for 10 minutes in whatever style you want. You can write poetry, prose, an ode,
an essay, whatever.
There are just two catches:
1) You can't stop to edit. That defeats the purpose which is to block your inhibitions and just see what develops.
2) Provide positive constructive criticism and feedback for the others posting.
If you feel the need to read others' submissions before writing your own I won't slap your hand - not even
virtually - but you are technically cheating because you would be, at least subconsciously, starting to think
about the topic.
I started last week's article partially to gauge if there was any interest. The answer
seems to be a resounding yes.
In response I've also started two other writing exercises/experiments, one in which
we will together write a thriller and one where we will write a fairy tale.
Ok, on with the exercise
