Friday Freewrite #7 – Iced Tea

July 29, 2011

Freewriting is an exercise in timed, stream of consciousness writing. It’s a fun and useful activity for writers of all types. Every week, I’ll provide a prompt as a springboard for freewriting. For more information on what freewriting is all about and how to do it, see this post.


Today’s prompt is a photo:

Taken in August of 2008 in Pleasant Hill, CA

Possible questions to consider: What’s going on in this photo? What does it make you think about? How does it make you feel?


I hope this prompt has stirred some interesting thoughts and ideas for you! Freewriting is inherently messy and sometimes deeply personal, but if you feel comfortable sharing your results, please post as little or as much as you’d like in the comments.

    Pink nailpolish was the first thing that jumped out at me. Who is it wearing that nailpolish? Many young girls wear that shade, but the shape of the glass on the table looks more like a glass that an adult would use. Why do we even have distictions for certain colors or glass shapes? Do people even notice those types of things anyway? It’s just the way it is so no one says anything? Does it really matter anyway? There are more important things to think about, but I don’t care. Maybe I should be a psych major or something. Or at least take some more psych classes because I seem to be drawn to those kinds of questions. Peoples’ thought processes can be so interesting, including my own. Right now I’m so tired that my brain may not even be working the same way that it usually does.

    I think I should get a prize for being the only one to have done all of these so far.

        Is there money or something to go with it? Lol.
