Day 2 [Writing 101]

My room is, for now, empty like a blank page. Just dark grey carpet and double door leading to the balcony. 9th floor guaranteers to partially reveal the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye. It is a perfect place to drink my morning coffee and spy on the St. Thomas hospital. Also to watch the New Year’s Eve fireworks if that’s your thing.

There is a built-in wardrobe (yay!). I can picture where my brand new IKEA bed with extra storage will go and the matching IKEA chest of drawers. All in white. That way the room will still remain a blank page, the furniture will simply form the lines. Only then I can start to write and edit, embellish, enhance.

Huge pink cushion? Check.

Fairy lights? Check.

Table lamp with buttons? Check.

Multicoloured & multi-paterned bed linen? Check.

Lime green wicker basket? Check.

Straightjacket? Probably needed.

Criminal investigation on a basis of violation of good taste? Pending.

 

Writing 101 – Day 2

Day 1 [Writing 101]

Prompt: Free-write for 20 minutes

I have realised I haven’t done this exercise in a while. Then I was reminded again when my fingers started cramping up after barely two pages. I filled five pages with immediate thoughts and random stuff. It was liberating but there isn’t much of a substance in it. That doesn’t mean it was pointless. The freedom that comes with ignoring the nudging self-contiousness, dismissing the urge to edit every single syllable and leaving the misspelled words at peace is what is unlocking the treasures inside us. No boundaries, no obstacles, just us.

Twist: Publish the result
