Just Say No
Write at the top of your page: NO! in caps, with the exclamation point.
Set the timer for two minutes and write everything that comes to mind related to NO!
Grab a clean sheet of paper. This time write at the top of the page a teeny, tiny no without an exclamation point.
Set the timer for two minutes and write all the things that come to mind when no is tiny.
Now flip the pages over. Start with the big NO!. Write YES! at the top and do the same for the big yes. Then write yes at the top of the back side of no. Write for two minutes for the little yes.
At the end, read and enjoy the different writing these words and sizes conjured up. There may not be any ryhme or reason to them, but then again, there may be. You might even be able to harvest some sentences from these four freewrites to make an interesting poem.
Use the cut and paste method. Print up the lines, cut them into strips and start arranging them (no editing of the actual lines). Just see where they lead and play with all kinds of arrangements. When you’re happy, stop!
