Friday Freewrite #18 – “The day I stood still…”

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 day I stood still...

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 day I stood still…” was like any other day, except I stood still rather than dash to-and-fro; it was the best day of my life!

  2. …and breathed…nothing went wrong. All I have worked tirelessly for did not crumble into oblivion. The world and its goings-on slid by, as unperturbed as the clouds that weave together and unravel, incessantly yet without hurry, overhead.
