  • Our task today is to Take ideas from music such as looping and apply them to writing.
  • Ok here’s the rhythm; dit, dit, dit.
  • Write it down and make the first dit bold (we are emphasising the first beat).
  • Rewrite that phrase ten times – hear it loop in your head as you write – with the emphasis on the first dit.
  • Keep writing – but now add the following word on the second beat, ‘badom’.
  • As you keep writing add a tune of words on top; something of your own choice.

There you go, we’ve invented a new genre of fiction.

I’m calling it whooping as in word looping. You can call it what you like. And you will.
