Friday Five Minute Exercise - Something You Are Angry About

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

2. Write about Something You Are Angry About. Once your anger is poured onto the page, take a break. Approach the same subject and now write and inspirational piece that embarks on change fueled from that particular anger. For example, if you are angry about the injustice of inadequate resources for women, you would write the first piece, spewing every frustration you have about the subject. Your second piece would focus on the inspirational view, changes you would make as a result of the anger. Be creative.

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.
