5 minute musings

I’ve set the egg timer. When the egg dings, my writing time is up! Will this encourage me to just write freely without over analyzing everything I write? Stream of consciousness writing is fun, isn’t it? There will certainly be a lot of crap. Oh well, time is ticking… I can hear it. It is inducing anxiety. How much thought can I fit into 5 minutes? Well, writing under the pressure of time has always been extremely hard for me. I never did well on timed essays in school. My brain would freeze up. Putting coherent thought and sentences together were challenging because I kept thinking about running out of time. So why am I doing this to myself now? Wow, the ticking has stopped already. But where is my ding?! Faulty egg timer.
