Simply 6 Minutes – Welcome to the Challenge: 10/04/2022

Welcome to the 6-minute challenge!

This month we will have prompts that have something to do with Halloween…

Today’s prompt is:

Halloween frankenstein illusion horror optical illusion Sven Sauer skull skull illusion poster festival

This is a movie poster for a scary movie. It is monsters leaning over like surgeons might lean over their patients during surgery. Zooming out it is almost like a picture of a skull.

*****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!

      1. Hi Trish.
        are you asking about pjngbacks, or my link into Chrstine’s comments? Basically it’s a case of highlighting the url reference in my post and copying it into the comments. (That’s how I do my pingbacks too, by copying the relevant url and pasting it into my post, usually over the word ‘here’.) Sometimes it just comes up as my post identification, but sometimes it prints the first couple of lines which is down to WP.
