As you may expect, totm writing is writing that releases you, disengages you.
One of the best ways to free up your brain is to unhook it, let it roam.
Write a short paragraph about an ant that talks in riddles, for example, or a lonely wave that searches for her mate in the deepest waters of the largest ocean.
Natalie ____, in her book __________________________, describes a wonderful writing exercise that allows you to circumvent your brain so that you can then experience what it feels like to write totally unrestricted, unrehearsed prose.
I borrow liberally from her method because it makes so much sense and because it's fun. Writing teachers use Natalie's method to help students avoid the pitfalls of writer's block. Instead, students learn to liberate their minds and their writing.
Whenever you're stuck in the middle of writing -- a blog, an article, a paper, or a book -- totm writing can get you over the hump.
It's especially fun and interesting if several people do it together (are a group of writers ever boring???)

Just try it.
Creative, stimulating prose awaits!
