Step Back Jack

A Unique Title For Me

Rocky the squirrel told the intruder not to come one step closer, or else they would regret it.  Rocky went on to say, “If you choose to come closer, I won’t have any choice and I will have to fight you, and if you have ever been scratched by a squirrel before, you will know that this can be a very unpleasant experience.  You may think that I am a tiny creature, but I have long sharp teeth and claws, so this probably won’t end well for you.  I am certain to leave you with a very deep and painful cut, and there is a good chance that I am carrying some type of nasty disease that you don’t want.  When I am feeling threatened, I will scratch your eyes out, and that won’t be a good look on you.”

Now you just hold it right there!
We discussed this.
Doesn’t my opinion count for anything?
Or my feelings?
I told you how I felt.
I reasoned with you.
I tried to make allowances, alternative suggestions even.
But no!
You had to go ahead regardless.
Well it ain’t gonna work.
There is NO WAY your mother is coming to live with us!

*****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!
