Today’s Prompt:

  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.

Thank you for participating!

Cleo insisted on bothering Baxter, despite Baxter asking him to leave him alone. That’s what little brothers did and Cleo was just fulfilling his role. Milly, being the oldest of the three, was considered the wisest and expected others to treat her like a queen. Mom and Dad even put a special shelf for her to sleep on that was hard to reach from the other shelves. Cleo wondered if they did that so he wouldn’t bother Milly.  Who knows, but having a brother and a sister, Cleo thought he’d have someone to play with and he wouldn’t have to beg. Baxter luckily never bothered Cleo and never got aggressive. Milly  was a different story. But no matter how many times Cleo took a swat at Baxter, Baxter would just… (211 words)
