STUCK? Try this story starter:
Major Jamie Smither touch down the sleek silver spacecraft onto the surface of the planet. This was it. Ever since Planet X763K was discovered, scientists wanted to send someone there. And it was down to Jamie. Would the planet hold the solutions to the Earth’s problems as hoped?
Jamie climbed down the ladder from the ship and landed on the purple soil of the planet. Well, that was certainly different.
What happens next?

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.
