"glass bottle" a five minute freewrite

in freewritehouse •  6 months ago 


This is the freewrite challenge. I am using @mariannewest’s #freewrite prompt to write this piece (https://steemit.com/freewrite/@mariannewest/day-590-5-minute-freewrite-sunday-prompt-glass-bottle)

Today’s prompt is:

glass bottle

This is part seven of my current freewrite series (posted daily Monday - Saturday).

You can find parts one, two, three, four, five, six if you are interested

Kelly opened her mouth and then closed it again, the question she wanted to ask died in her mouth as she realised she was not quite ready to hear the answer. She looked at Nunchucks and he looked back at her. His expression was serious but the situation seemed suddenly ridiculous and she started to chuckle.

Here she was sitting in a cafe with a guy with a hairstyle that looked like a birds nest perched on his head, discussing the imprisonment of her father, and joining some undercover network to fight the Government.

Nunchucks looked away and looked at the girl behind the counter. A moment later, whilst Kelly was still trying not to laugh - and failing - the girl -Anne? is that what Nunchucks had called her - was standing beside them, holding a glass bottle.

"Have some water, " she said and banged the bottle on the table. Kelly looked up and tried to say thank you. Nunchucks nodded at Anne and she leaned across the table and took Kelly's phone.

"What the-"


As usual, I started with the freewrite prompt and used themostdangerouswritingapp.com to write the first five minutes (and then popped it into google docs to check for errors and tidy it up a bit):

Another awesome installment in the ongoing story of Kelly and - LOL! - what a name! - Nunchucks. You're a natural at this. I've been noticing that even the best TV shows feature short scenes, really short scenes, the equivalent of Flash Fiction, and when I pick up a novel, chapters and scenes strike me as overly long and drawn out. I'm turning into a 21st C American reader, all ADHD and impatience and "cut to the chase" and unwilling to slog through a slow-paced novel no matter how richly detailed. You're a pleasure to read! And there is no lack of substance despite the brevity of each scene. :)
