Our free-write is back by popular demand: today, write about anything– but you must write for exactly ten minutes, no more,no less.
Last night I was unable to sleep. I bought a set of furniture without seeing, I only saw a picture of it.When it was delivered I thought something was not right.I took out the picture and saw the company sent me something different and to make matters worse it’s too large and ugly.
I went back to the store but the sales lady wasn’t there, I went the second, third and fourth day but I wasn’t getting the answer I expected to hear, i.e., we’ll take it back.
Today she finally said they’ll have it picked up on Saturday,which means I’d have to wait two more days, this is so frustrating.
What’s the biggest risk you’d like to take—but haven’t been able to? What would have to happen to make you comfortable taking it?
The biggest risk I’d like to take is to write a fiction, where the characters would resemble my family members i.e my siblings. The reason I haven’t tried it yet, because I’m not sure it’ll go over very well.
Everyday I come close to writing it, my inner voice keeps warning me, “Not a good idea,write something else.”
But something else cannot be as interesting as my siblings, when my mom was fed up with us, she’d always say, “How did you turn out to be so different from each other?”
During those days we actually got along with each other, we helped, we shared, we were not selfish.Today we are so different, it’s amazing.
Nothing can happen to make me comfortable taking this risk!
What kind of sleeper are you?Do you drop off like a stone and awaken refreshed or do you need pitch black and silence to drift off to dream.
I am not sure what kind of a sleeper I am. It’s different, so I am unable to write what kind I am. Some nights I can lie down,say my prayer, and if I can keep my mind off any kind of thoughts good or bad I then fall asleep. I am a very light sleeper I always have been,it hasn’t changed.
I have to have some kind of light in my room all night, to be able to sleep. If the light goes off due to weather or rolling black outs I instantly wake up and find it hard to breathe. I know you’d think that’s weird but having a dim light in my room is a necessity for me.
Then the prayer time changes every morning, it is 5:28 a.m today, so when I woke up my system was declining to leave the bed, I forced myself to get up after twenty minutes. It was still okay because the sunrise was two minutes before seven.I finished after twenty six minutes I mean praying. I didn’t feel I had enough sleep,but chose to turn on the computer and see if there was any mail for me, there were a few,I took care of those, I knew I wasn’t in a mood to have breakfast that early so I went back to bed.
When I woke up at 8:50 a.m I felt refreshed and happy I made the decision to go back to sleep. I am glad today’s prompt is all about sleep. I don’t dream much only occasionally.
Yesterday at 5:00 a.m I woke up thinking about the zucchinis I bought a week ago. I was sure they would rot after staying cramped in the fridge for a week. To my absolute delight they were as fresh as they could be, first thing I did I sliced them, washed them ,and spiced them. Imagine dreaming about zucchinis, they were in my sub-conscious mind I suppose, had they not come to half awake and half dreaming mode they’d still be cramped up and eventually rot.
