Writing Together

How to jump into the flow of writing

Writing doesnt need to be a lonely affair.

Some friends who like to write met one evening in my house. We decided that each one should prepare one task on what to write about.

We started out with free writing for five minutes, to get the words flowing and empty out.

The rules for this teqnique are very simple:

• Dont think.

• Dont stop. Keep that hand moving.

• Dont look at what you write, while you are writing.

• Dont hold back.

• And when you touch something that burns inside, go there.
We read out loud what we had written. We gave feedback if we felt to.

One had prepared words on small pieces of paper. We picked words and used them as a starter for poems.

I am amazed of how much came out of this evening, writing together. I am happy to share some of the poems that came:

(they are in Norwegian… so if you don’t understand – then you just jump and write yourself :-)) 

 

Hunden som snakka seier ingenting etterpå

Hunden som snakka

seier ingenting etterpå.

listar seg framfor alle.

Tilbake søv katten bak stolen

I dag.

Og brødet går seg vill

mellom koppar og kar på bordet.

Kvar vår lukkar ho døra innst

Under sofaen

Og gøymer seg der

Vel eit år.

(Pracheeta)

 

Daude ord

Ord, seier du.

Ord som skal falla ned på papiret mitt som lauv, seier du.

Dei fell vel ikkje ned, orda, dei vert skrivne ned dei,

av pennen her i handa mi.

Ord, seier du, som skal forma seg til setningar,

til forståelege setningar med samanheng og ei meining.

Skal seie deg det, det er inga meining.

Med nokon ting.

Inga meining med eit einaste ord.

Ord er som sommaren i fjor,

sola då varmar vel ikkje deg no.

Ho brann då ho, i fjor.

Og det er ikke no.

Ikkje eit einaste ord er no.

Dei er berre minner i gamle brev frå han til ho.

Dei var i går dei.

No er dei  berre ein gamal draum,

som ei bukse utan saum.

(Pracheeta)

 

Hver gang han omfavner

Mitt hav

Snakker vannet. Og regnet

Renner

Opp.

Under snøen

Våkner

Tryggheten

I morgen finnes

Oss

I fjor var alt utenfor vinduet

Nå venter jeg ikke mer
