Simply Six Minutes – Barforama

  1. Set up a timer or sit near a clock so you can keep track of the six minutes you will be writing.
  2. You can either use one of the prompts (photo or written) or you can free-write.
  3. Get ready and write for 6 minutes, that is it! Can you write a complete story? Can you think of a new Sonnet? Can you write 400 words? 400? 500? There are no restrictions on what kind of writing you do, but you should try to be actively writing for six minutes.
“I didn’t do it, did you do it?”
“Nah, I think Mikey did it.”
“What? No way Jose, I wouldn’t touch that with a ten foot pole!” The five boys dressed in Halloween masks stood peering into the bag. “Guys, I think I’m gonna puke!” Then of course they all felt like that and whatever was indeed “in the bag” was now covered in regurgitated Halloween candy.

    1. Barforama term is from a Stephen King book: The Body made into a movie: Stand By Me. It’s a great movie and I had read the book way before the movie came out but loved the movie. Part of the reason I loved it was I was exactly that age at that time growing up.
