I woke up this morning and decided to seek out @mariannewest’s five minute freewrite to see if I could write a decent story in five minutes given I'm one of those people that agonise about every word I write and often re-write blogs numerous times before hitting the post button.
At this stage it's still not uncommon for me to reread and edit post publish. Lucky for my OCD, Steemit only gives me seven days to do so before it's seared into the blockchain for all eternity never to be changed again. Im hoping through things like this freewrite to reduce this.
It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon, the sun was high in the sky with not a cloud to be seen. I looked out the window to see the children playing on the swing their dad had made for them years before.
The oldest two of the three had managed to squeeze on the wooden plank with the youngest doing her best to push their combined weight when suddenly I heard a crack, then the thud and finally the screams.
The old swing ropes had snapped under the pressure and the eldest two were in a crumpled mess in the dirt, tears streaming down their faces as the youngest looked upon the whole scene with a smirk that was so desperately hiding a laugh...
This is actually a true atory written through the eyes of my mother. I was the eldest in the dirt crying.
Time flies when you're having fun.
Wow, that is not long when you are writing, may not help that I am doing it on my phone while walking on the treadmill but in the world of multitasking and competing priorities, time is in short supply so multitasking is the way.
I have to apologize as I think I may have even gone over by 30 seconds to finish it up.
Thanks for taking the time to read my #freewrite. I enjoyed writing it and think I may do more of these going forward. Thoughts?
