I love this idea! It strikes me that it would be difficult to really just be writing for yourself in an open space. But I think over time we’re getting better at that — reflecting out loud. I participated in a workshop once where we were asked to do ‘low stakes writing’ exercises. These were timed opportunities to quickly reflect (writing, in silence) on what we had learned or still needed to know. It was amazing how the TIMED aspect allowed us to just let loose. Some chose to share what they wrote.
Ha! How about really sticking to the 10 minutes and tapping out what enters your mind without overworking it?
