A Writing Exercise

I like to give myself five to ten minutes each time I sit down with the intent to write. I use this short period of time to ramble. No correcting, no going back. No editing. Just write. Then I save the document and look at it later. I have found that it really gets me going, helps me find my flow…though I have to say that I come up with some really ridiculous things when on such a time constraint.

Something else that I found is that when under pressure I tend to rhyme. It is a strange thing to me since I am not a fan of rhyme, but I usually end up falling into a rhyme scheme, and some sort of rhythm. Oh well. I am basically sharing this because it gets me ready to write. I was hoping it may help some others too.
