Weekend Freewrite – The Spider

in freewrite •  last year  (edited)

A fictional story written in five minutes. For more information see the post by @mariannewest here: Weekend Freewrite 4-28-2018

The house on the corner had always been the subject of gossip. I was the only one who knew the truth. I knew the truth because I was the one that lived there.

I kept to myself mostly, occasionally ordering pizza for delivery. Going to the store was an expedition in itself. I liked to wait until later in the night when things had settled down a bit. It was so much easier to shop without the crowds of people to distract me.

Things hid in the isles of the grocery store. Odd things. Things that you wouldn’t want to see too closely. They disappeared from view and hide in the shadows.

No one understood why the house on the corner grew cobwebs in the corners of the porch. A large spider grew there. The neighborhood kids came by one time to ask if they could have it.

I knew the fate of a spider trapped in a jar. It felt so sad. So sad to be away from its friends. I looked at the kids and tried to persuade them that the spider would like to stay where it was.

The next day the spider was gone. The web was in tatters.

I didn’t matter so much I suppose. It was only a spider and perhaps the kids would enjoy their new friend.

In few minutes???awesome one!

Thank you! It is fun to freewrite if the inspiration is there. The first sentence that was provided got things rolling for me.

Good story @lightsplasher, as well as a beautiful little spider image,
Success is always for you @lightsplasher

I like this story, as a suggestion, it would be more beautiful again this fiction story if there is ending it.

Thank you for the suggestion. The five minute timer went off and that is all the was written. Perhaps the story could be continued and get better characterization and more of a plot too. I'm not sure if it would be worth doing or not though.

All must be done with confidence, it will produce maximum results. there is no doubt to start. we as human beings do not escape from mistakes, but all we must be aware and ready to fix it. all of that also for our own success

That was fun!! Thank you so much for writing with us!!!
And I hope that the spider is cared for!!!

Thank you! It is fun to do these type of things.

We have a prompt every day. That might be your ticket to write more :) I saw you commenting to old-guy-photos that photos are easier for you. Love to have you as part of our little community of extremely free freewriters

And here is your friendly prompt delivery service :)

Today’s prompt needs your care!! Give is some of your freewrite love and grow it into a story.

so sorry for the little spider....

I like it. Brings out some of the feelings of Charlotte's Web in that the fate of Wilbur is known and not nice. Unfortunately it seems humans, even at a young age, are inherently able to emphasize much. Well done my friend.

Thank you my friend. In a way I find it harder to put out written stories than photography, I'm glad you liked it.

Poor spiders, sometimes I feel unbearable when driving a spider from my home. But the existence of him at home make the atmosphere of the house becomes not beautiful.

Very interesting my dear @lightsplasher :)

Your heart is very kind and gentle.! :)

For the future I will be off in steemit for the next 50 days. Thanks you so much for support me on steemit.
I wiil come back.. for steem on. :)

See you.. ☺🤗

That is very understandable, some spiders are hard to have in the house. I do remove them too and put them in the yard when the spider population gets too high or it feels appropriate.

You are welcome and I hope to see you back on Steemit when you can be.

I often see this spider at the corner of the wall of the house. their fate is a little unlucky because it often becomes a lizard food
but the spider web in the corner of the house will block many mosquitoes
happy to see your post, this picture like in my place

A sad story of isolation and unnecessary cruelty. You character was very sympathetic.

I have to admit to a bit of phobia where spiders are concerned. If the spider is small enough I usually trap it under a glass and set it free outside. But this one time the spider was so big and hairy, I trapped it under a glass and it did have to live there for a few hours before I could find someone brave enough to set it free. I swore after that ... no more basement suites.

There is something primeval about the fear of spiders but they have their place in creation. I admire your bravery where they are concerned. But there are few that will lunch on you when you are sleeping. Probably not these guys though ... they look like daddy long legs, which actually have the most poisonous venom of any spider but teeth not sharp enough to bite through human skin. It's a wacky evolving world we live in:)

Well, perhaps the story could use a happier ending but the five minute timer went off.

These spiders move really slowly and stay up high out of the way. They haven't caused any problems and don't make much of a web but I have moved some of them out of the house and into the garden. I usually leave them alone in the bathroom and garage where they seem to prefer living but when they encroach too much on other areas, I relocate them.

We are lucky to have spiders. They keep insect populations in check:)

In 5 minutes. You have some serious writing skill.You know the art of how to pluck words into garlands. keep it up @lightsplasher

Thank you! Sometimes the words flow, however, most of the time I have trouble thinking of what to write.

seems words are flowing in a beautiful way. But for me mostly words ceased to flow:(. Have a nice sunday

very beautiful animal and unique friend @lightsplasher. the animals in your post are almost identical to the animals in my post. I salute your work with friends.

https://steemit.com/photography/@anwars/small-animals-but-very-beautiful-and-unique-7b2e61b76e465

Thank you. That is a unique looking spider.

both good friends @lightsplasher and always successful friends.

this is a small spider that jumps into my hand while I'm walking on a tree. image

how are you friends, oy I am very grateful once because a month ago you noticed me and visited my blog friends, although in this last month you never again visit my blog, but I never tired of following you my friend @lightsplasher. and hopefully you are in good health always friend.

Very nice spider photo! I am fine, thank you. It is very hard to get around to everyone because of my limited time and the fact that I don't use any automated voting.

I can understand with your busy friends, with you read my comments aja, I am very happy friend.

This spider legs are very easily dislodged, it seems difficult to walk because the feet and body is not balanced. whatever the wisdom behind his creation.

They are interesting. As I recall one theory is that anything hunting the spider will get distracted by the leg if it comes off. It is kind of like how a lizard can loss its tail and get away from something.

I like the fictional story written by @mariannewest in a short time (five minutes) about the life of the spider @lightsplasher. I am @cutmulia, very happy to follow you and read your stories or stories, although my comments are less appreciated but I am still happy to follow you @lightsplasher.

Actually to clarify, I wrote the story from a prompt provided in the post by @mariannewest but it is a bit confusing. I do appreciate all of everyone's comments although it is tough sometimes because of how many there are to properly respond.

Sure enough. I'm not even sure if I did it correctly. It was taking longer than five minutes to understand the directions so I just read the prompt and went with it. :D

Spider is very nice @lightsplasher I like your way, I hope you present in my post thank @lightsplasher

every house wherever he stands even though inside the palace though a big small problem there must be, today you have a profit for me it is good, profit profit is not a bad animal but profit profit has its own uniqueness, he can crawl slowly to make a house small for occupancy, children do like animals, but not good if caged.

A very good job @lightsplasher I will always support you but I hope you present in my post

A very good way @lightsplasher, I really like your work even though, you rarely present in my post I tetep support you

the house in sudud not much different from the front of not all the houses in the corner of the target, you now have my profit profit think it's good for children's toys, kaba earnings sebenar its beautiful he can make home wear his own yarn.

wow very excellent information freewrite @lightsplasher

I am afraid of the spider being displaced from home if you find it at home
I am very weak heart

Cool maifriend @lightsplasher

A pretty profit @lightsplasher I also like with profit profit image
