Olympic Writing: Stretch First, Then Go For the Gold

Getting ready to write that paper?  Why not start with a 5 minute warm-up exercise?  Surely Joannie Rochette and Sidney Crosby stretch before hitting the ice… So, before you settle into writing your paper, take 5 minutes to Freewrite: Write for 5 minutes without stopping, whatever comes to mind.  Don’t edit or cross out or judge or censor.  Allow yourself to write anything.  Just keep your pencil moving.  5 minutes.
