Friday Freewrite #16 – “Beneath the moon…”

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:  Beneath the moon

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. “Beneath the moon” is where the ‘white lightening’ still sat, waiting for the runners to fill the jugs for their dash over the back roads—(in memory of George Jones’s hit from 1959)

  2. Beneath the moon the jellical cats lounged on the retaining wall, eyes brightly reflecting the glowing orb and glittering with each tiny movement as they peered into the deep shadows under the trees, seeking the inattentive vole or field mouse who had tiptoed out in search of nightly nibbles.

  3. Beneath the moon we jump off the continent…there’s a misconception that surfers don’t surf at night because of sharks, ridiculous. Just after sunset is the best time, especially in summer, when everyone else has left the line-up. It’s a wonderland.
