Write “FREE” across the top of a page and just start writing. Don’t think! Don’t cross
anything out! Don’t worry about flow! It’s just you and whatever medium you’ve chosen
to write. When you feel that you’ve written enough or that your hand has given out skim
the piece. Figure out what to keep and what to throw away. Are there any parallels? Is
every verse different or are there some that fit together like pieces of a puzzle? Use these
striking verses for your prose or a poem. Save any that you didn’t cross out for another
piece and or write record them in your idea book.
