Friday Freewrite #5 – “It is hard not to…”

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:  It is hard not to

See the comments below the post for responses.

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. …think “coulda, woulda, shoulda.” It’s hard not to think at all. The mind, when not tenaciously focused on a task, wanders aimlessly like a wanton child, picking up things along the way to examine, mull over, worry about. It’s hard to be truly still. It’s hard to just be.

  2. “It is hard not too…” become swell-headed when someone compliments me for something I didn’t even know about. My thoughts run a muck with, “I am clairvoyant! I am all powerful! I am bigger than my pants, but hey, they’re my pants, so I can muck them up if I want.”
