Friday Freewrite #49 – “In this moment…”

Welcome 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 advice 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.)

Today’s jump line:  In this moment…

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. …I have so many responsibilities, I feel I should make a list. Instantly I dismiss this idea, though, because surely I can’t, even with terribly clever (Dr. Who fans? Are you with me?) time management, possibly jam-pack everything into this one Friday.

  2. I feel guilty for sitting on the couch when I should be getting things done. It’s Friday. I deserve a few moments to just sit. I’m trying to stay here, but I feel the tug of so many things. Oh, but the cushion feels good on my butt!!

  3. In this moment.. I go within. Whatever impulse is telling me. I leave the dishes, the breadcrumbs on the ground, the unattended e-mails, photos waiting to be uploaded, the overwhelming to-do list and go outside for a stroll in a winter wonderland, knowing that when I get home my head will be much clearer on what to tackle first for the coming week.. I know, I know it’s not Friday 😉
