Every morning I propose a writing sprint, a ten-minute burst of furious, flying by the seat of your pants wordsmithing. Why? For starters I assume you're here in the first place because you've some propensity for writing, regardless of your experience, so you shouldn't really need an excuse why, anyways. But because I love you, I'll feed you, baby bird. To create a sense of community between writers and other creative types, because I want this to be something that many people can share between each other and see first-hand the scope of inspiration and storytelling there is out in the world. That's why. And maybe by doing this we'll learn from each other and grow and forge ourselves into something better than we were before. Maybe it sounds lofty, but I think it could happen.
There's a catch, though. You knew that, right? You totally saw that coming?
Little prompts will accompany each sprint, two things to be precise: a song, and a theme, to be interpreted however you choose and used as inspiration. And please, by all means, write whatever it is comes to mind whether it's poetry or prose or a dissertation, a memory, whatever. The only real hard and fast rule is that you write and throw it down in the comments so we can all read it.
So, I'm going to shut up and press play, and start writing. The clock is ticking.
See you on the other side.
