Suggestion for timed writing
Good morning everyone. In a moment we will begin our Timed Writing for today. You can remember that the goal of Timed Writing is to write as much as possible. You may also remember that while you use your pen to write that you can simply cross off any mistakes and write above them. You can remember as well that if you don’t know a word in English that you can simply write the word in Japanese. You may even be curious to translate and learn some new words afterwards.
And it is a good thing to be curious because that means you may be wondering about what topic we’ll be writing about today. And today’s topic is your week so far. You don’t have to remember everything that you have done this week such as what you learned in your classes, what you did after school whether you met friends, or did your part-time job, or did something else completely different. It’s not important to think about all the activities and experiences you have had since Monday until now. You can just easily see some of those events in your mind now. You can notice what you saw, what you heard, and how you felt during those activities and experiences now. And as you write you might notice that you jump from experience to experience. And that is okay because it means that you are writing fast and just letting your pen fly along the page just like the experiences that you are remembering in your mind from this week are already flying through your mind now, aren’t they?
So, you know what the topic is for today “your week so far”, you are already aware of some of those experiences and even what you will write about, you know that our goal is to write as much as possible, so let’s spend the next 10 minutes writing as much as we can. Begin now.
