Friday Freewrite #10 – “The first thing…”

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.  (Just click the comment bubble  to the right of the post title to leave a reply.)

Are you ready? Let’s begin!

Today’s jump line:  The first thing

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. The first thing…that came to her mind was very often the best course of action, yet doubt would creep instantaneously into those thoughts, leaving her frequently shaken in her assurance of what was best. Life passes quickly by those who spend it worrying.

  2. Today’s jump line: The first thing… I do each day is wake up. Somehow I find the day goes easier and smoother if I am awake. I used to try to not wake up, but that was the pits. Life is so much better when you can experience it.
