The hardest part of writing is getting started. You usually spend a lot of time figuring out what you’re going to say before you start. But sometimes, you just need to force yourself (or, in this case, be forced by your teacher…) to start writing anything and everything and figure out what you really wanted to say afterward.

Your task at the beginning of class today is to write freely without worrying about anything. The only rule is that you can’t stop writing. Write ANYTHING. Correct NOTHING. If it’s messy or spelled wrong, who cares. If it doesn’t make sense or sounds weird, who cares!

I DO NOT NEED TO READ THIS, but I do want to see that you’ve written something. If you have to write the same thing over and over again (NO COPYING AND PASTING!), go for it. If you write a bunch of nonsense, so long as it’s words, go ahead.

Here are some questions that you COULD write about if you want to. If not, write about your weekend, your dog, what you want for lunch, why you hate doing this, why Mr. Robson stinks, WHATEVER! No judgement, no wrong answers, just WRITING!

What would you do if your friends went missing?

You’re just a kid, what could you do?

What would it really take to bring them back?

Tell Mr. Robson what's on your mind!
