The Cure for Writers Block (Use an Egg-timer If You Must): C.M. Mayo’s “Giant Golden Buddha” & More 5 Minute Writing Exercise


The most confounding challenge for most writers, whether newbies or tough-as-bark old pros, is finding the time to write. But — come on, no excuses— it’s easy to “take five.” Back in 2005, after teaching a one day workshop on “Break the Block,” for my workshop participants, and also for myself, I decided to make it my daily practice to post a 5 minute writing exercise. I also invited a few writing friends, including several Writers Center faculty members, to contribute their favorite and most effective exercises. “Giant Golden Buddha” and 364 more are available for you at http://www.cmmayo.com/d5mwe.html May they be both fun and useful.
