Every gotten stuck while making up character details, backstory, or those pesky missing scenes in the middle of Chapter 12? Enter the freewrite. A freewrite is when you just type whatever comes to mind about the subject. Words, phrases, song lyrics, random ideas, backstory…it’s really just a stream-of-consciousness about your subject. But once you start writing, you’ll get more and better ideas, or they’ll connect better. Freewriting might also provide setting details or theme details about your subject. It’s a great way to kickstart a writing session!
