Introduction to the Daily Prompt 5 minute Freewrite

Freewrite - what the heck is that you ask. Well, it is the opposite of a well thought out, highly edited, and grammatically correct piece of writing.

Freewriting is to set a timer for a certain amount of time and write. Without stopping. Without correcting anything. Without worrying if what we write is good or bad. Nobody cares.

The point of the freewriting session is to get out of our heads and tap into our creative self - allow things to flow. Sometimes, great writing will result. Well, and sometimes - not. The point is to get into a daily (or however often you can) habit of writing.

The Plan

@improv and I have come up with a plan.

  • We are going to take turns to come up with a daily writing prompt.
  • Set your timer to 5 minutes.
  • Start writing
  • Publish your piece
  • Use the hashtag #freewrite
  • Copy and paste your URL into the comment section of the prompt post.
  • Or, if you don't want to publish your freewrite, just copy and paste.

The Prompt

The prompt might be one word, several words or a phrase. Make sure to include them somewhere in your writing.

Or it might be a question or a statement. No need to include those in the text unless you want to.

And since this is a freewrite for free writers - in the end, do what you feel like that day. But share with us!!

WE don't have much voting power, but we will do our best to upvote your comment.

We might think of other rewards. Stay tuned.

Each daily prompt will have a link to this post - in case you forget how it all works.

Look for the posts from @improv or me titled: Day (number) 5 Minute Freewrite - Prompt....


I like your idea very much!
I have been practicing freewriting differently and never thought to publish it as such. I'm not going to promose I'll do it here, but it really sounds like fun. 🙂

hope you will play :) It is not about being good. It is about doing it and shutting up the inner critic. It is understood and expected to produce not so great writing :)

Yeah, yeah - I know, but I'm still not sure about it. It's not about you or the play. It's just about me. But will see! 😉

Nice comment, particularly the phrase "not about being good." So often, that desire / need to be good or great stops us from doing things (or writing things) that really are not that difficult, and which are in fact great practice.

I so agree with you!!!

I'm loving this idea and have no doubt as I get more comfortable with this platform will be participating! Thank you so much for this!

Sounds like a plan to me!!! Going to leave you a prompt so you can join us easily :)

What a very clever idea! Thank u for that!

You are welcome. we are doing this now for four months. Look at my profile and you find the latest prompt.

Hey, hey! Loved the idea. Just one question: to play, I need to follow the word prompt you guys give or choose any myself?

Well, usually in free writing exercises you follow the prompt. But, since this is a platform dedicated to freedom, you are free to do what you want :) I am posting a prompt every day. When I have been in writing groups, I always enjoyed seeing in how many different directions the same prompt can take people. But, as I said, freedom rules :)

I just came across on this post. Following!

Yes, Play with us!! Today's prompt was "crazy" :)
