Ascertain: Your Daily Word Prompt


  1. find (something) out for certain; make sure of.

Written for Sheryl at YDWP:

My vow

Before I go I’d like to see 

If with you’s where I’m s’posed to be 

Spending time together without strife 

Leading a happy and simple life 

I’d look at you and know right then 

That I have surely made ascertain 

That you’re the one that I love now 

And always will, that is my I vow.

“Simply 6-minutes” Writing Challenge 07/28/2020

Welcome to the challenge: 07/28/2020

Rules of this challenge:

  1. Set up a timer or sit near a clock so you can keep track of the six minutes you will be writing.
  2. You can either use one of the prompts (photo or written) or you can free-write.
  3. Get ready and write for 6 minutes, that is it! Can you write a complete story? Can you think of a new Sonnet? Can you write 400 words? 400? 500? There are no restrictions on what kind of writing you do, but you should try to be actively writing for six minutes.
  4. After you are done writing, include your word count and then post back to this page #Simply6Minutes or include your link in the comments section. Pingbacks are enabled.
  5. *Feel free to leave your work completely unedited. I believe it is good to see, especially for new writers, that even very seasoned writers don’t write a perfect first draft.*
  6. Have fun, challenge yourself if you’d like, read and respond to others’ posts.
  7. I would appreciate feedback on how often writer’s would like this challenge. Is it a once a week challenge? Just Saturdays? Let me know a day that perhaps there aren’t a lot of other challenges already scheduled.

Today’s Prompt:

Narragansett, RI

Thank you for participating!
