His motto was to be fearless and if something prevented him from doing that, then he was going to fake it. If he was a shark, nobody would ever bother him and he could do whatever he desired.

Dolphins and sharks are often confused for one another because of their streamlined bodies and dorsal fins on their backs. If he had a dorsal fin on his back, then he could pretend that he was a shark and hope that no dolphin would come along and try to ram him.
The Cat in the Hat was so tired that day no time for a nap not when kids want to play with the heat of the sun and the wind at their heels they jumped on their bikes Cat had training wheels They road past the market and waved to a man who held up a sign asked for change in his can They went past the bank without money to leave the Cat had an idea a trick up his sleeve So the Cat took the children had them crawling around looking for money a game called Lost and Found The kids they found nothing ‘cept some bugs and chewed gum they thought the game silly it was a little bit dumb They told the big Cat that they’d do a few chores and when they were done and had swept up the floors They’d tell their sweet mom who would swoon with great pride and give them some money which they’d both promptly hide Well the Cat wanted money so they rode back again and he looked for some paper and a working blue pen The Cat wrote a list of the jobs he would try then their mom paid him plenty and he quickly yelled, Bye!
Set up a timer or sit near a clock so you can keep track of the six minutes you will be writing.
You can either use one of the prompts (photo or written) or you can free-write.
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.

James Hale AKA “Tank” had been a biker since he could remember. He had the tats, the beard, and the rebel attitude that accompanied his lifestyle too. He never had any ‘brushes’ with the law but had seen lots of gnarly stuff go down. It was a life for “losers”. Now that he had finally settled down and had kids, his biker club days were reduced to weekend rides, and he forbade any of his “brothers” to come to his house. He’d gotten through the rough life but understood how toxic it could be for his impressionable children. He wanted so much more for them.
