Writing Prompt: Frozen In Time

Writers block has been a  common phenomenon throughout history.  Join me and others to help unlock the block on Free Flow Friday’s.

Professionals such as cartoonist Charles M. Schultz, author Scott Fitzgerald and songwriter Adele have all struggled with writer’s block. We are no different. As writers, sometimes our creativity is blocked from external, and yes, internal voices. Free Flow Friday is about loosening the thought process to unlock the mind and release the energy within.

Every Friday, a quote, image, music clip, word or writing prompt will be posted. Use these as a way to unblock and enhance your creative thinking skills.

There are no rules. Find your right moment in the day or week to write with little to no distractions. Use a pen, pencil, keyboard or whatever fits the mood and just write. WRITE. WRITE. WRITE. I prefer pen, (blue ink) rather than my computer. My thoughts seem to flow faster when my pen hits the page.

Express all those buried, unconscious thoughts within the deepest part of your mind. You may use the timer provided below as you write. But whatever you do, don’t stop until the time is up. Keep the flow going. Do this as often as you choose. The more you write the more you unlock the block. Once you feel you have a creative flow, take something from your writing and turn it into your own masterpiece.

This event will occur every Friday, so check back for the weekly prompt.
If you have used a prompt and posted on your blog, link back to this page. Free Flow Friday’s: Frozen

Once you’ve published your post, you can leave a link to your post in the comments section of that particular prompt used.

Please don’t post and run. Be sure to stick around to support others with positive feedback.

Your comments, suggestions and questions are welcomed. Please remember to be respectful with your words to keep the positive flowing.

Free Writing Timer

And just like that, time was frozen. Much like this leaf, we can sometimes feel frozen.

Free Writing Exercise: Focus on the photo/Use a timer (for at least 1 minute) and write whatever comes to mind. ( any random thoughts) JUST WRITE! When the timer is up, go back and look at what was written. Circle or highlight the first words/sentences that pop out. Use these for ideas for future posts.

Photo Writing Prompt: Whether it be from emotional fear, physical elements or just frozen in your thought process, write about the word “frozen.” What does it mean to you? Share any experiences you may have that were “frozen.” If you had one moment to be “frozen” in time,  what would it be?

Please Share: If you have used “Frozen” to write for your own blog, please remember to share your link here, with your finished post. Don’t forget to check out fellow bloggers. Share the comments and positive feedback. 🙂

Free Flow Suggestions: Please feel free to share your views/suggestions you may have for a few prompts or free writing exercises. Keep the positive flow…

  1. Love the prompt and I did start following. I did the writing exercise but did it for six minutes. I will probably do 10 minutes in the future. Look forward to this weekly post. Thanks, Laura!


    1. Thanks Sandra! I thought I would put this out there and hopefully connect with others. I submitted it to Blogging U for their weekly event platform but I’m sure it takes a while for approval. Hopefully they can jump start it for me even more. But I really appreciate you being the first to submit a post. I’m excited and look forward to connecting more often with you and your blog. 😃
