Don't lift your pen off the paper
Don't worry about grammar/spelling
Free write for 5 minutes on the following topic:

YOUR turn...
Start with your topic in the center, and branch out from there with related ideas.

“Discussing” is similar to brainstorming, but you do it with a partner or group.


1. Assign one person to write down the ideas.
