Let us do an experiment today.  Do some free-writing using your non-dominant hand.  Try to fill a whole page. Writing by hand increases neural activity in certain areas of the brain. It also forces you to slow down and allows more time to think.  Using a non-dominant hand can strengthen the current neural area, and it also helps to grow new connections. This will allow you to tap into creative thought patterns.

Write a poem using the ideas found in the free-writing above.

As usual, you can post your poem here if you like. You will need a password. Write to theliterarynest@gmail.com if you need the password.
