Sometimes the Freewriting… Isn’t

July 15, 2008

While freewrites can be powerful and productive ways to get the composerly juices flowing, they don’t always go according to plan. Or at all.

This morning, for instance, we were given the luxury of choosing from two different prompts: “Where were you last night?” and “The earth rumbled…”

Here’s what I came up with:

The earth rumbled…

Where were you last night?

As I said, sometimes the magic happens, and sometimes it doesn’t. Sigh.
