About Writelight

Writelight is a tool that helps to use freewriting and other writing exercises for personal development or for boosting results in work and life.

What is freewriting

Freewriting is a liberating, freestyle form of writing that acts as a problem-solving tool, which helps people think through their problems. Freewriting pushes the brain to think longer, deeper, and more unconventionally than that it normally would.

October 22. Sunday. 9am. ✒📒🌲🍂 I’ve been setting my timer on my phone and doing 10 & 20 min free writes in the morning. Where I try not to lift my pen. 🍂 It’s always intriguing to me how we can shift in ritual. What worked a month ago doesn’t serve me now. And what works for me now (free writes) didn’t inspire me at all then. #doingmybesttogowiththeflow😅 #phew 🍂 Maybe my words are for you too. I was surprised at what surfaced: I am not responsible for another’s pain Including my partner’s I cannot take their pain or struggle It is theirs to experience and learn from As my pain is my own responsibility and no one else’s · Our struggle is our teacher If we talk about it And allow ourselves to be seen Great discomfort in growing pains We can resist acting on our own behalf · The new frighteningly unfamiliar Yet can trigger emotions we know Like the back of our hand Frustration Grief Anger Rage Sadness Doubt Exhaustion Depression · Trying to lock in on the familiar through feelings Can be positive And can backfire if we are trying to stay safe and shutdown We can also be hardest on ourselves this way Accusing ourselves of regressing Feeling sorry for ourselves Thinking we are alone We are the only one · We all do this it seems Resistance fine tuned as 2-leggeds We forget how far we’ve come And that it was darker in the past Each of us more alone back then When we knew ourselves less · Now we are seasoned in experience And need one another’s honest mirror To keep going To stay open to inner knowing To love To connect through being seen Now more than ever · We are not responsible for the other’s pain or struggle It is not our job to fix what is not even broken (we can feel broken, yes) Yet we are being asked to step up To believe in this earth school process To believe in the other’s capacity To experience To learn To decipher Their individual way As we practice believing in our own way 🍂 Thank you so much for reading, for being {here} with me. ✒📒🌲🍂 #wordsformeasmuchasyou #writeandsharetoheal #freewrite #freewriting #looseningtheblocks #stayinghonestwithmyself #journaling #journal #iamwriting #writersofinstagram #underthecedartree #outmyfrontwindow

To practice freewriting, you just need to set your timer, and write continuously whatever comes to mind. Do not pay attention to grammar or typos, do not stop to reflect on what you are writing, just continue writing until the designated time has run out.

What are some other writing exercises

We created Writelight specially for freewriting, but it can be used with many other writing exercises.

Writelight is perfect for journaling, if you practice journal writing, you can keep doing it as usual, just add 5-7 minutes for writing with prompts from Writelight.


If you are doing morning pages, start with a prompt form Writelight. You can keep writing for three pages, and use the quote (when the time runs out there is a quote) as a second prompt to give your ideas a new direction.

Writelight is also useful for expressive writing.

Why should you use Writelight

Sometimes it is very hard to come up with an idea, what to write about. It can be struggling and not very effective to use any of common writing exercises without a good prompt.

Writelight has solved this problem once and for all.

Open the website or the app, choose the time, choose one of five topics, and start writing. It’s easy, it’s effective.


How to use Writelight

Get your pen and paper ready, set the timer, get a prompt, and start writing. Once the time is up, there’ll be a quote. You can use the quote as a second prompt and keep writing for a minute or two.

Writelight can be used as a web-service on writelight.guru, there’s also an app available both on Google Play and App Store.

We have problems with the app on some Android devices, this shouldn’t stop you.

If the app doesn’t work, go to the website, it’s working fine on smartphones. On the website we also have more backgrounds, so it’s a bit more fun. New prompts and new quotes also appear on the website first.
