Friday Five Minute Exercise - Inner Guidance

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

2. Write about Inner Guidance. What happens to you when you don't listen to your heart? Do you lose focus and second-guess your ability as a writer? Sometimes cultural pressures persuade us to react and write in ways that are not true to our hearts. How many times do you stop and think about the audience instead of listening to that inner guidance that is trying to give you the words?

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.
