Simply 6 Minutes—Welcome To The Challenge: 9/15/2020 by Stine Writing
Dude….Joe? What the heck are you doing? We don’t make wine here. You can’t be stomping the ground beef to tenderize it. That’s beyond unsanitary.
Joe get the heck out of there. What the….? Do you have your shoes on? We are going to have to break down this whole dang machine and clean it before we can get anything done. Did you take drugs today?
We are going have to stay all dang night to meet our quota for the day. We have tons on rush orders from stores.
YO! Joe are you hearing me? You act like I am not even talking to you. If you don’t get yourself out of this machine I am going to have to take you out of it and I don’t really want to do that. If someone comes…
Today I woke up to a day was hot enough to make the devil sigh(From a Country song I can’t remember the name of). I decided it was a great day to visit the local ice cream shop. So, I gathere the kids into the car and away we drove.
As we pulled into the parking lot my heart sank. Why did I not realize I would not be the only one with this idea. It looks like everyone and their brother thought about the same thing.
The long line wouldn’t be a big deal except for the kids’. Do you know how difficult it is going to be to keep the kids entertained while we wait our turn. Not that that isn’t bad enough, but we are talking about sweat drenched kids that increases the challenge tenfold.
*****For any participants that do NOT like restrictions, please feel free to participate in any way you would like. It is great to read the contributions!****
Set up a timer or sit near a clock so you can keep track of the six minutes you will be writing.
You can either use one of the prompts (photo or written) or you can free-write.
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. (Most of the time I barely get 200 words!)
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.
*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.*
Have fun, challenge yourself if you’d like, read and respond to others’ posts.
Jack, what the hell are we going to do with that thing?
Listen Larry, I told you to just stand there and look busy while I get this thing out of here.
Jack and Larry were busy with the tank of clones. No one knew what the Boss had been working on but he said they were ready. Jack and Larry had flipped a coin to see who would actually reach into the water and pull it out. Neither of them knew if this thing would bite or be poisonous. The only thing they could think of was either the pet alligator Boss always wanted or the Man-of-War jellyfish he was trying to make more deadly than nuclear weapons. Jack was really hoping for the alligator, even though it meant possibly losing a finger in the process.
Jack, have you got a hold of it yet?
Larry, will you give me a sec? I mean if you want to reach in and fish around for whatever is lurking under this mucky water go right ahead but if I’m the one that has to do it I’m only making little ripples until it comes to the surface.
Boss wouldn’t have had you reach in if it was the Man-of-war.
Well, he may have had you reach in but I’m the dumby who did the coin toss and lost!
Thanks a lot. So much for thinking we were friends.
Jack and Larry continued to wait but whatever it was below
