Simply 6 Minutes – Welcome to the Challenge: 11/01/2022

Welcome to the 6-minute challenge!

Today’s prompt is:

20 Old Mysterious Photographs Discovered on the Internet

This picture shows the image of a young girl standing on the edge of a water source, by herself, but there is a reflection of her and another girl in the water.

*****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. I was part of the writing group mentioned earlier by Cathy Cade. I wrote for six minutes. Amazing how quickly the time went. I barely had time to set the scene, but I did finish the story later…excellent prompt. Will be looking out for more. Wendy

  2. Grandad’s vision.

    ‘Grandfather said he could see two of me reflected in the lake, Mother. He thinks you are going to have another daughter.’
    ‘That will NOT happen, I can assure you.’
    ‘I know.’
    ‘You do? At your young age?’
    ‘I thought I’d got away it. After I trod on his bifocals, I mended them so they looked as good as new…’

  3. What a great photo for a prompt. I will take it along to my writing group this week (onThursday) as an in-meeting prompt. Thanks for the idea.
    (I’ll encourage them to respond on here after the meeting, but some are unconfident about their work, so you may not hear from them.)
