4-4-4

[Prompt: Look around and choose 4 things within 4 ft. of you and 4 minutes to write about them.]

The digital machine hums as it begins its daily rituals– attendance, email, wordLe, it’s warmed up for the day of hard work.

A ten-year-old sits with his favorite fotbol jersey on scribbling away in his notebook about Spiderman’s adventures

My coffee sits waiting to be sipped… adorned with white almond foam -it turns luke warm

Notebook soft and delicate craves to be written in– my script fills it’s pages as it sighs with relief that it is being used today.

  1. So glad I stopped by today. Yet another great way to generate some writing from not-nothing. My notebook is still insistent, and unlike yours, neither soft nor delicate. But it does offer a space for thoughts-not-ready-for-prime-time. Love this small scene 4-4-4.

  2. I really like this prompt and I also want to try it. I’m always amazed by what I notice and think about and end up writing when I have a constraint like this. You’ve crafted a gentle piece that has something important to say about writing.
