Friday Five Minute Exercise - Liberation


1. Set your clocks/timers for Five (5) Minutes.

2. Write about Liberation. Write about your definition of liberation and how it relates to your purpose as a person and as a writer.

Webster's Dictionary defines liberation and liberality in the following ways:

- The quality of being liberal
- Generosity
- Broad-mindedness
- A gift - donation
- To set free, as from bondage
- To free from oppression or from conventions considered oppressive
- A political and social movement formed to promote the interests of a group regarded as the object of unfair discrimination or bas: Women's liberation
- The stare of being free in action or thought from the domination of others or from restricting circumstances; freedom
- A particular permission, right, or privilege
- Free, unconfined

Do these definitions of liberation rouse emotions in you as a writer? Get into as much detail as you can for the next five minutes.

3. Ready?

4. Go.

5. Finished? Review and be amazed.

I hope you had fun. Come back next Friday for a new writing prompt.
