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.
