6 minute story – The Elephant Dragged its Feet

I am procrastinating, as usual. Instead of finishing my NaNoWriMo novel, I am finding other things to do.

Today I discovered the 6’minutestory site.

Here you get a prompt to start your story and you type directly into a text box on the site. The clock is ticking from the moment you start. At the end of six minutes, the story is finished. You cannot add any more words.

The prompt today was “The elephant dragged its feet.”

I love elephants. Could I resist? No.

Did I finish the story in 6 minutes? No.

I will do better next time.

Here is my (unfinished) 6 minute story, entitled The Defeated.

I am feeling sad today because my elderly father is slowly dying. This influenced the writing of this story.

  1. Hi Rebecca
    Thanks for your comments and I love your site. Congrats on being published in Ether. Never heard of it before and I will download the app.
    Dad died just before Christmas and the funeral was New Year’s eve. I need to write about it, but need to put some distance first.
    Keep scribbling!


I would love to hear your thoughts. Please leave me a comment.
