Tuesday Writing Prompt Challenge: July 26, 2022

This prompt is from Go Dog Go Cafe: https://godoggocafe.com/2022/07/26/tuesday-writing-prompt-challenge-july-26-2022/

Todays prompt: Write a poem using the words theater, children, and perspective

In my abstract perspective
I strive for something more
than children in their costumes
showing up at my front door
Its like a little theater
the street it is the stage
But some of those big actors
have surpassed the acting age.

Crazy Lady: Compilation 07/26/2022

She’d been watching her old neighbor’s house
for weeks
and weeks and more
but she saw something impossible
that made her
lock her door.
Her desire to unlock it was an option
she disposed
the brutal looking man outside
made her quietly avulse
Approximately two days more
and she was overcharged
Reacting like a live wire
was feeling very large
She couldn’t share her upset
she knew they’d find her daft
She looked and sounded crazy
especially when she laughed.
She pulled out her old pistol
and aimed it at the door.
Thats where they found her body
a bunch of bones now on the floor.

Di’s take on the prompt – Awesome!


Any idea what this is?
Nope, but I hear they communicate far distances with it.
Do you think he’d miss it?
Not really, he’s intent on taking a picture of his girlfriend.
OK then, give me pointers. You’re the one with the light fingers.
Yeah, but I’m in the wrong place, so you’ll have to do it.
Is it better to pinch or grab?
If you don’t want him to notice, lightly pinch and gently pull but if you feel the slightest resistance, desist and retreat.
OK……….. I’m going for it…………………

The scream was deafening.

Simply 6 Minutes – Welcome to the Challenge: 07/26/2022

Welcome to the 6 minute challenge!

Today’s prompt is:

Street Chalk Art Optical Illusions

This picture shows a man taking a photograph of something (off the screen). Someone had drawn street art to depict a king and a jester coming up out of a hole. The king’s hand looks like it is about to steal something from the man’s back pocket.

*****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!
