Burying the Past

It is so sad to me to see the past being buried, literally! I love the old brick roads. If they are still around doesn’t that mean they are better than the paved roads that we keep putting on top?

Three Things Challenge

Hosted by Di at pensitivity101

Your three words today are:

In front of the castle there stood a tall guard
with a sword and a shield and a gun
when asked if his job was brutally hard
he grinned and said it was fun.
He held out a card at the end of his sword
with his name and his number complete
He gave it to pretty young girls he adored
and asked them to tea and to meet.

*****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!
