Writing Exercise 02: Freewriting

It doesn't matter what you write, spelling mistakes are unimportant, just write, whatever comes into your mind. Just write!
On your pencils, get set, go:

"The warm summer wind twitched on her hair."

The waves on the shore and the palm trees' murmur sounded like a soft lullaby. She loved the ocean. It was quiet here and so peaceful. She stood still, she could feel the warm sand under her naked feet. When she opened her eyes she could see the glittering blue water and its beautiful colors. Quite dark blue in the far distance over different shades of lighter blue to turquoise right here on the beach. She liked blue. Every time she was here she felt that yearning in her heart.

Well, obviously I'm truly obsessed by the ocean, am I not? You will know, what I'm talking about, when you read "Voodoo-Island".
