Friday Freewrite #4 – “In time…”

Friday-FreewriteWelcome back to the Friday Freewrite!

Here’s how it works:

  • I post a “JUMP LINE,” a short phrase that will serve as a writing prompt, each Friday.
  • YOU put pen to paper and write for 90 seconds. (I’ll do it, too, of course.)  Don’t think.  Don’t cross out.  (That is wise advise borrowed from Natalie Goldberg in Wild Mind.)  Just start with the prompt and see where it takes you.
  • Then POST YOUR RESPONSE as a comment.

Are you ready? Let’s begin!

Today’s jump line:  In time

See the comments for my response.

Note to Writers Forum members in good standing: The newsletter editor will be perusing Friday Freewrite responses to publish in the newsletter.  If you DO NOT want your response printed, kindly indicate this in the comments.  We are happy to respect your wishes.  Happy writing!

  1. …we say it like it’s a container – a vessel – we need to fill. I hope I get there in time. It’ll happen in time. Or how about “due time,” like time is something we are owed, can expect more of, can count on, like weather, like the sharp spines of winter on autumn’s back each year.

  2. (In time…) … I will learn that your business in none of my business, just like my business is none of your business. EXCEPT when money is involved. Then it is all my business.

  3. …I will forgive my ex for taking 4 of my service years and part of my retirement but then again maybe not because I will have to wait longer to retire. So when I’m old and gray it will still affect me. Todays letter from the lawyer bit forgiveness in the butt. In time. I won’t get anymore letters from divorce lawyer!!!

  4. In time, you will leave me though you swear you won’t; in time we will betray one another, though we lie we won’t; in time we will know the best of each other and have no remorse yet remember when time stood still and we were happy.

  5. In time, our country may regain it’s footing. Taking us back to sweeter times, friendly neighbors, gentlemen, hard workers, kinder times when you could pick up a hitch hiker and enjoy a good conversation while most often taking a service man closer to home. Where a genuine act of kindness was received kindly…
