Friday Freewrite: Listen up!
Today, write all the sounds you can hear in five-seven minutes. Sit quietly, set the timer and then write. Notice the shush of traffic, birds, your brother bounding down the stairs, the sound of your own breath, the creaking of the chair when you adjust your seat. Really notice and write them out in language that helps the reader hear the sounds. If all you can do is list them, that’s fine too!
