About Errant Epiphanies
While it’s all too easy for some folks to get caught up in exercises such that they distract from writing, when used carefully and well they’re very useful. Having an exercise to respond to can inspire you and prompt you to think in ways you might not have otherwise. Free-writing and knowing that your exercise won’t be judged can loosen up your creativity in ways that don’t happen when you’re worrying about what people will think.
