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. That was fun………..I got here due to your “liking” my post today and came to visit finding the challenge and decided to “go for it”. This is my 88 word poem inspired by your prompt:


    An amazing optical illusion
    Meant to cause confusion!
    First a woman in a shawl
    Passing by a tree so tall
    Then my eyes reshuffle
    The image is my kerfuffle!
    A man stares back at me
    Is that George Washington I see?
    I love things that challenge my mind
    Sometimes our minds can be blind
    Our eyes may see one thing clearly
    But our minds’ eye says “no – but nearly!”
    A pen and ink masterpiece this may be
    But it set my creativity free……….
