Friday Five Minute Exercise - Limits

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

2. Write about Limits. What limits do you set for yourself and others? Are these limits based on the behaviors and beliefs that you have been taught and/or absorbed throughout life? Do you believe that these self-inflicted limits affect your writing and your ability to achieve your inevitable success? Create a written plan to break self-imposed boundaries.

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.
