I discovered several blogs today that give a daily or weekly writing prompt and then let you either post in comments or post on your blog and link back. I thought I’d play a bit at OneMinuteWriter and I found out just how little I can write in one minute!
There is a timer on the site – you Just click and start writing. These are the instructions:
1. Read the daily writing prompt.
2. Push “Play” on the timer on the right side of the screen.
3. Spend 60 seconds or less writing a response to the daily prompt.
Friday Fiction: Time
Write a brief, creative, fictional piece about time travel.
This is what I wrote
I kept my eyes shut for a moment until the nausea passed. It didn’t seem as bad this trip so maybe I’m finally getting used to it. After a moment, I open my eyes to the light and as I look around I know instantly where I am. I’ve been here before. I glance at the clock and as the hands click I run, knowing I have only moments….
Either I type slowly or some people don’t actually limit themselves to one minute 🙂
It seems like a good way to get ideas and practice.
