5 Minute Freewrite: day - Prompt: drive

in freewrite •  last year 

I push you hard because you have the drive, and the training you receive here will give you the confidence to overcome the obstacles you will face when you leave this program.

We will relentless test your mind, spirit, body each and every day you are with us. If you wish to quit, ring the bell and walk away.

Your loyalty toward your squad will have to be unquestioning if you are to succeed at completing the obstacle courses we have laid out before you. When the sweat drips in your eye, which is followed by a stinging feeling, your squad will be there ready to give you the assistance you need to keep you headed forward on this difficult and windy path.

Self-sacrifice will be required. Some of you may have to carry the biggest person next to you without regard for your life. This will be the toughest lesson for some of you.

  • Grammarly - I use this app all the time to catch my mistakes. If I didn't have a spell checker, you would be lost in my world. haha!

  • @kristyglas Random Games - Yes, random. She will put this contest out on Thursdays (usually) and end it after post pay out (usually). This is challenging because you don't know what you are going to get.

  • @steemmonsters Steem Monsters Common Card Fantasy Story Contest! - Coming out roughly every week. If you enjoy card games like Magic, Yugio, and others like it, you might like this game. Write a fictional tale about the card they present in the contest and your entry just might be the one they choose to showcase.

  • @vdux Haiku - These are coming out every couple days or so. If you stuggle with rhymes, no worries. Haikus don't have to rhyme. All you need to make a haiku is five syllable on the first, seven syllables in the second line, and again back to five syllable for the last line. So easy it makes me think I'm being super product. LOL

So I was wondering around enjoying the summer, writing some freewrites and BAM! I got hit with a hot potato! And it is really hot! So I had to toss it to you (love your story on Drive too!)

If you're wondering what it's all about, @freewritehouse started throwing a hot potato! Don't get caught with it or you'll have to clean up after the party. It whacked me here: https://steemit.com/wewrite/@ntowl/each-kiss-a-thorn-week-2-of-we-writes#@stinawog/re-ntowl-each-kiss-a-thorn-week-2-of-we-writes-20180813t054109372z
Go read another freewrite and pass it on to that writer in the comments! Also, yes, I really read your freewrite. Here's the link to the contest announcement:https://steemit.com/freewrite/@freewritehouse/hot-potato-an-over-20-club-game

I picture this guy played by an aging Tom Cruise.

I think it could work.

I love the photo! And the story - it's a wonderful thing to help someone achieve their potential, to grow.

Also, I thought you may like to keep writing, so I'm dropping by the newest prompt:
