a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I do a ton of free writing. Free writing is where, for a certain amount of time (say, 5-10 minutes) just HAVE to keep writing. You can't take your pen off the paper and think, you don't worry about spelling or grammar or even if it makes sense, you just write. I love this because I just let go and follow my train of thought, and sometimes write about experiences I totally forgot about! It usually results in some really rough, raw writing that sometiems makes sense but often doesn't. Either way it's a great starting point!
