There is nothing more torturous than an agitated mind.
It’s like a treasure chest of unspoken riches
Selfishly guarded, every jewel meticulously analyzed
Accumulating over a short time–
Epiphanies, suspicions, fears, schemes–
Until it overflows
And the tortured realizes too late
That it was easier to open than shut.

This freewrite will be an actual challenge!
Have you ever wondered how an author can take a 200,000 word project and reduce it to a 300 word blurb? It sounds like a real challenge and, from what I’ve heard, it is!
Many of us are finishing or have finished our NaNo projects this month. You’ll be using THAT project (or some current WIP) in this freewrite.
Your challenge for “freewrite” #9 is to:
- Write, in exhaustive detail, what your story is about. Simple!
- Rewrite that in 100 words
- Rewrite that in 10 words
- Put THAT in 1 word
You’ve got two weeks! Post it on your blog and leave a link in the comments.
