Looping is a continuation of free-writing. It involves taking a sentence or idea out of a free-writing product and using that as a basis for additional free-writing. The steps are simple:
- Select a recent (completed preferably within the last fifteen minutes) free-writing exercise.
- Choose a sentence or idea that stands out because of originality, quality, or interest.
- Write the sentence again below the original free-writing example, with one line between the two.
- Re-read the sentence and free-write again from there.
As the name suggests, looping is a prewriting technique we can use in a loop.
