Friday Five Minute Exercise - Pleasure and Pain

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

2. Write about Pleasure and Pain. Are you ever inspired to write by the occurrences of pleasure and/or pain in your life? Does writing about these topics allow you to understand yourself better? Painful memories often stay buried until the writing process digs them up for you to sift and sort through.

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.
