Melanie hosts this weekly bout of questions…

  • Questions
  • What’s the most useful thing you know? How to read directions! I put all the stuff I purchase together. I have often thought about doing it as a side job…I’ve seen that advertised before. I’m very good at any type of directions
  • What impact do you think it would have on the world if bananas were illegal? I don’t think people would care. I think people would just find something else to use in its place. The world seems like it is like that. I would miss them.
  • What social stigma does society need to just get over? Race…Good Lord! How many pieces of evidence do we need to show that the human body is the human body no matter what color it comes in!
  • Do you prefer the moral viewpoint of consequentialism*, which focuses on the consequences of actions, or deontology,*  which focuses on the innate rightness or wrongness of the actions themselves?  I think both because it starts with deontology and then if people pick the wrong thing to do they deal with consequentialism.
  • con·se·quen·tial·ism
  • /ˌkänsəˈkwen(t)SHəlizəm/
  • noun
  • noun: consequentialism
  • * the doctrine that the morality of an action is to be judged solely by its consequences.
  • **************************************
  • de·on·tol·o·gy /ˌdēänˈtäləjē/ noun
  • * the study of the nature of duty and obligation.

GRATITUDE SECTION (As always optional)

Please feel free to share something good that happened to you in the past week.

I am thankful that I have enough time to do some of the things I enjoy the most like crafting, building miniatures, crocheting…etc.

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!
