Five Minute Freewrite: Mosquitoes

in freewrite •  last year

Oh how I quiver with anxiety at today's prompt, but I'll give it a go.


I wonder they are self-aware. If they flap their little thin wings towards a destination and goal or if they forget where there going every 10 minutes and lose all mental control.

Empathizing with a pest is harder than I thought. Thinking about constantly feening for blood makes me a woozy and a bit distraught. If I dig down deep and try, maybe I could give it a better shot.

The lightness of a feather and a bzzz like a bee, flying about and drifting like a breeze through an oak tree. A keen sense of smell for a sweet treat (aka red meat). Always knowing what they want without truly realizing it, like an instinctual fate.

Actually more like a prophet, born to be without any desire to appose it or stop it. Oh those pesty mosquitos, I would probably suck blood too if it tasted like Cool Ranch Doritos.

Your attempt of empathizing is original and truly remarkable @mrslauren .. I don't know if it would be easier with a fly, probably yes. Nice perspective and..welcome to the freewriters zoo (I didn't see you before, maybe it's my fault :-)


Thank you very much! I'm pretty new to freewriting, so I have a lot left still to learn but it's been fun so far :)


Well, no need to learn a lot as it's one of the most spontaneous thing you can do here in steemit, it's basically a flow of thoughts put into words.. everytime comes to my mind James Joyce and his literary style. I guess that the best representer of this exercise of creativity and freedom is @improv (check his freewrites for an idea). I contradict all this in my freewites a bit, couse usually I try to put down some narrative ideas I had before..the good of this community however is that everyone does what they feel ad long as It help is free our creativity 😉

Just 5 minutes, you have nice idea
