Friday Freewrite #12 – “To look closely…”

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:  To look closely

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. To look closely at things is to look for flaws or beauty. Pretty much a choice day to day whether to go negative or positive. The closer you look the greater the details, the greater the art, the greater the discrepancies. I prefer that people don’t look too closely at my life. I know a lot of my faults and don’t really feel like engaging any new neurosis’ at this time. I try not to look to closely at others….(time up)

  2. to look closely, don’t hesitate. Don’t dwell. Jump in. Both feet. Hold your breathe. Dive deep. Into water , words, cooking, whatever. Just go and then slow. Use each sense to hold the moment. Go beyond the easy. Scrutinize.

  3. To look closely, dive deep. Don’t hesitate. Jump in. Both feet. Use all your senses. Breathe in details. Listen, touch and repeat.
