Fandango’s Story Starter #35

Fandango hosts this writing challenge. Check it out here

This week’s Story Starter teaser is:

She was quite serious when she looked me straight in the eye and said…

What the hell is wrong with you? Can’t you see that I am trying to do something and that each time you ask me a question and interrupt me I have to start all over again?

Veva looked wearily over the screen of her laptop. She didn’t mean to be such a bitch. She just wanted a few minutes to sit and get some things done, when she was needing to get them done. Now of course she regretted her words. I mean, is being interrupted the worst that can happen to a person? Ugh, she needed to take a break and relax. Living with her best friend was a blessing that she didn’t want to lose.

This weeks prompt: “War is at the doorstep. What do you expect me to do?”

Cry from Ukraine

War is at the doorstep
What do you expect from me?
To pick up guns and ammo
or let the enemy be?
There is no point to fighting
for we were already free
Please go back to Russia
So we don’t have to flee.

War is at the doorstep.
What do you expect me to do?
Take away my family?
Abandon all that we knew?
For war is always ugly
and this one without cause
Our world must come together
There is no time to pause.
People here are dying
Lives are all at stake.
How many people do we lose?
How much can we take?

Simply 6 Minutes – Welcome to the Challenge: 03/01/2022

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!
