Friday Five Minute Exercise - The Need for Silence

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

2. Write about the Need for Silence. Do you need silence to calm your spirit? How does silence relate to your level of creativity? Does the stillness in your life elicit your creative tendencies?

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.

Was this exercise helpful?

Did you succeed with this writing exercise? Was it helpful? Do you need silence to be creative? Does silence calm your spirit? Were you able to relate silence to your level of creativity? When silent, are you more creative?

Why or Why Not?


  1. Actually, I don't love silence. I like having some background noise.. otherwise all I hear "interruptions" from what is around me. Weird?

    1. no, Seana, you're not weird at all. You're a writer. You write with a muse. Your muse likes music. I think it's great! have a blessed day!
