How do you feel about impromptu writing exercises at conferences or workshops? Do they make you feel like you’re taking a timed test, or do you get a creative boost from the adrenaline?

Every February, the Write Owls host a month-long write-a-thon where we challenge ourselves and our readers to write every day by midnight.
