Sorry for the confusion! I don’t know where this post had disappeared to!!!!
Welcome to the 6 minute challenge!

Today’s prompt is:

quotes-children.jpg (550×461)


You may use any part or the entire quote. If you have a different quote you would like to use, go right ahead. This is for fun, a sort of personal challenge. Enjoy and thank you for participating!

*****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!

Sunday Muse # 133

Morning Amazing Musers! I know it has been a crazy time, and an even crazier week, so here is an image to take your minds off  things.  I look forward to seeing the directions you all take!  http://thesundaymuse.blogspot.com/

Victory

When waves of dread wash over you 
and the salt burns your lungs and eyes 
the flame of hope stays brightly lit
We can hear your victory cries.

I picked Gratitude to write about for the month on November. I missed a few days but life goes on…

Gratitude

On this day, 11/05/2020, I am thankful that I had such a good, caring, loving mother and that I can remember her and see some of the pictures from her life. She passed away in December of 1994 so it has been quite a long time. I don’t remember everything but I can pick out moments and remember her, what she said, etc. I can’t really remember her voice. Everyone loved my mom. She did so many things (must be where I get it from!). She reupholstered furniture, sewed everything from Halloween costumes to prom dresses to stuffed Christmas trees for the holidays. She used to make these really neat ornaments out of egg shells. My cousin still has a few. She would somehow take just a little oval of the shell off and clean out the shell. Then she would put a little scene inside the shell (guess maybe that is where I get my mini-stuff fascination). Next she would dip the outer side of the entire shell in glitter. Finally she would put a little piece of decorative ribbon around the hole in the shell so it was almost like a little picture window.

Not everyone is lucky enough to have a wonderful, talented, loving mother like I did. I wish everyone did! I was very fortunate, and for that I am very grateful!

From my desk: 8/8/2020

We are still without power. The estimate is that it will be restored by Tuesday at midnight. This is really getting old!

I haven’t seen any posts in almost a week I think! As soon as power is restored I will have a busy day catching up.

The Storm

Dark clouds cover the sun. Lights flicker. Trees fall. Wind. Rain. Sun. Now there is only sun.

We shelter within

Masked world becomes one alone

Signs of a new day

From My Desk August 6, 2029

We still have no power due to the storm on Tuesday. Thank you for continuing to visit my site even though I am unable to peruse anyone else’s. I have to preserve my phone battery, otherwise I would use my phone.

Peace to you all, stay healthy, stay safe!
