Simply 6 Minutes—Welcome To The Challenge: 10/13/2020

Welcome to the 6 minute challenge!

Today’s prompt is:




*****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!****

  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!

  1. 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.* this is very refreshing to read. Pretty cool experience!

    1. Thank you Lisa, I am glad to hear that. I think one of the things that is best about writing is having some fun with it. If it requires too much and is too stressful, it isn’t always worthwhile. A lot of my writing just comes to my mind and I write, but if I have to put too much thought…I draw a blank!

      1. I agree! Best thing inside of here for me in a long time. Just so much fun! When I blog though it all just comes to me, maybe 10 minute writes at the most. I don’t prep, and never have. I just write from my heart. That is all real life stuff though. I haven’t wrote fiction in years! I just love to write, period! 😊💜
