What can you create in ten minutes?
Practice—that's the point of ThinkingTen. My goal, here, is to create a place you can come to each day to get your reps in, learn from others in the ThinkingTen community, and, ultimately, strengthen your craft.
The creative process—more specifically, the art of preparation and practice—feels like it's fading and T10 aims to reverse the trend. Full disclosure: I want to be part of your day—if only for ten minutes. No matter at what level you consider your writing skills to be, it is my hope that you jump into the ThinkingTen world, practice your craft by participating in the daily prompts, and offer some feedback to other writers putting themselves out there.
(1) Take ten minutes to write a story
(2) Edit and polish for as long as you need
(3) Cut and paste the daily prompt at the bottom of your story—like this—so future members, browsing through past stories, can see the prompt
