You have built a time machine. What year do you go to first? To the past? Visit the egyptians or King Henry VIII? Or to the future? What will happen there?
STUCK? Try this story starter:
I fed a copy of ‘The History of the World’ into the machine’s reality matrix. It googled it hungrily. The neutron cortex was at full power. The machine was ready and waiting. I climbed on the seat.
But where to first? 1600? 1700? Or even 2030?
I couldn’t decide. There was only one thing for it. I pulled the randomiser. Now, it was any body’s guess.
What happens next?
DID YOU KNOW? There is a famous story about a time machine called Time Machine by HG Wells. A brilliant and famous sci-fi writer.
What is Write – 30?
Write – 30 is a daily activity where you write non-stop for twenty minutes then check and edit your work for 10 minutes. You will be asked to write about different subjects and in different forms.
The writing should be done on lined paper in pencil if possible. Edit and check the work in pen. If you don’t have paper and pencil, use what you can. Even a computer.
Finding it difficult? What you can do to help:
- Always sit/work in the same place
- Always use the same writing tools
- Always turn the TV off
- No talking – it distracts thinking
- Always listen to the same piece of classical music when writing.
- Always set yourself a goal: count the number of words. Try to beat that number the following day.
