Simply 6 Minutes—Welcome To The Challenge: 08/24/2021

Welcome to the 6 minute challenge!

Today’s prompt is:

Funny-Cat-Hidden-1024x768.jpg (1024×768)

*****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. Love this photo…………took me six minutes to write this because my own cat kept begging for a belly rub! Word count 102…….

    Cat Burrito

    Onto the wrapping paper I carefully crept
    Remember I’m a cat…..we’re all quite adept!
    One thing I oh so unfortunately forgot
    Is wrapping paper curls up – so now I’m caught.
    My human thinks this is all so funny
    I say “you’d not laugh if you were me, Honey!”
    Stuffed in wrapping paper that’s holding me captive
    Well…..on second thought perhaps maybe I’m not so “adaptive” !
    I’ve wriggled and squirmed and rolled round and round
    But nary a workable escape route have I found
    My pitiful eyes convey my pitiful plea…..
    Stop giggling silly human and set your cat free!
