Friday Five Minute Exercise - Self-Ownership


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

2. Write about Self-Ownership. How does owning yourself affect your writing? Does the ability to examine and take ownership of your actions and thoughts make you a better person? A better writer? As you write, forget about the need for external validation from the world and own your beliefs.

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.
