The One-Minute Writer

Each day this blog offers a writing prompt and asks you to spend one minute writing about it on the theory that EVERYBODY has one minute to spare.

Here are the instructions from the site:

“1. Read the daily writing prompt.
2. Push "Play" on the timer on the right side of the screen.
3. Spend 60 seconds or less writing a response to the daily prompt.

You may respond in the "Comments" section of each post, if your response is family-friendly. Or you can use your word processor, or an old-fashioned pen and paper. It's up to you. Also feel free to use the "Comments" section for informal discussion about the responses that are posted.”

What’s a minute out of your life? I love the fact that they give you the timer. There is absolutely no excuse not to write. Who knows, the daily prompt may start you on the path to writing the great American novel.

  1. It's true ... a writing prompt at a conference sparked an entire picture book for me. Thanks for the heads-up about the site!
