Sheep: Day 314: 5 Minute Freewrite: Wednesday

in freewrite •  last year 

Sheep. You would like me to talk about sheep. Just let my fingers do the typing. Let my brain do the unconscious thing of pulling rabbits out of a hat. Oops. I am supposed to be writing about sheep.

My mom owned sheep. They would eat anything that got near their mouth but we were not allowed to eat them. Not fair.

Sheep live high up in the mountains. Have you ever seen one get taken out by an eagle? I would love to see that.

Sheep, sheep, sheep. Do you count those as you go to sleep? What number have you gotten up to?

Sheep in a pile. What could we do with those? Maybe they are sheep with laser beams attached to their heads. And, they can have ice cream as a way to attract children, getting them away from their parents. Then the children can be made to work in the sweatshop under the supervision of sheep.

LOL

I didn't write a #freewrite on sheep, but I'm working on a serial about space sheep and some of the ideas you have about sheep lasers plays a role in my story. You might check it out: https://steemit.com/fiction/@wordymouth/sheepmaysafelygraze-partone-819utsdopd

Thanks for contributing to the #Freewrites.

You remind me of a freewrite where I took a picture of a little sheep statue smoking a cigarette.. Thanks for mentioning and supporting the contest, you're always welcome bud ✌️

Your welcome. I have the goal in mind to be a consistently better writer. I saw what beginners luck had in store for me so I know what level of writing is possible.

Maybe the warning label on the carton should also read ”Don’t give smokes to animals.” 🤪
