Sorry for forgetting today's prompt. Lots of writing going on here.
When I was a freshman in high school, we had a student teacher give us an assignment before we wrote. We took a few minutes to write everything that was on our minds at the time. We wrote it as a list. I do this every once in awhile before I write to get everything out of my mind so I can focus.
So for today's prompt, do a brain drain. Write a list of everything on your mind. Do this for about fifteen minutes. Then proceed with your regular writing.
What do you think? Was it helpful? Why or why not?
