I was looking back through some old posts and I had completely forgotten about this one! I am so sorry about that, because after completing this, it was a terrific challenge! I did this at 12:30am so I was slightly impressed with myself and what I wrote may I just privately say ~.^
So Musings from a Tangled Mind sent me this challenge quiet a while ago and I did promise to do it (over two months ago now!)
Freestyle Writing Challenge
– Open an MS Word document.
– Set a stop watch or your mobile to 5 minutes or 10 minutes whichever challenge you think you can beat.
– You topic is at the foot of this post BUT DO NOT SCROLL DOWN TO SEE IT UNTIL YOU ARE READY WITH A TIMER.
– Fill the word doc with as many words as you want.
– Once you began writing do not stop even to turn.
– Do not cheat by going back and correcting spellings and grammar with spell check in MS WORD (it is only meant for you to reflect on your own control of sensible thought flow and for you to reflect on your ability to write the right spelling and stick to grammar rules)
– You may or may not pay attention to punctuation and CAPITALS.
– However if you do, it would be best. At the end of your post write down ‘No. of words =_____’ so that we have an idea of how much you can write within the time frame.
– Do not forget to copy paste the entire passage on your blog post with a new Topic for your nominees and copy paste these rules with your nominations (at least 3 bloggers).
I chose TEN minutes. And the word I had to work with was: Golden.
Golden like the sun, the first thing that comes into my head is the African sun. Watching my Safari Drives one of the most stunning views that we get while watching the sun rising and the sun falling.
How amazing, no matter which country you are in to just sit silently and watch that little Golden ball drop and then get to watch it again to rise.
The purples and orange colours that surround this stunning event and what always touches me is how it happens every single day. It has to be one of the most stunning events that happens every single day, it’s not just a symbolic sign but the science behind it as well always makes me things and will always moves me. We’re spinning on this planet, every single day, it never stops spinning. It’s why the sun comes up and goes down every day. Once we’re gone and for the million and billions of years that the Earth has been here before we were, it’s always spinning, making the sun come up and down.
We can’t control the new saying should be instead “There are THREE things guaranteed in this life, taxes, death and the sun rising and falling every day”.
Even as I write this, the Safari drive is on in the background and we are viewing the Sun fall down over the savannah and the African desert.
When the sun rise, a new day has begun. When the sun falls the old day is done. It cannot be repeated. Make every single minute count! That day is done and gone.
