Friday Freewrite #8 – Realization

August 5, 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 first line:

“The first thing I realized…”


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.

    This first thing I realized when I woke up that morning was that there was a cat’s but it my face. It was very unpleasant, and she refused to wake up and move. I had to get up to get her off, and of course she clawed me on the way down. Next time I’m not letting her sleep on me.

      A lot of people seem to be waking up with cats on them lately. I think they’re planning a takeover (the cats, I mean).

    I will do another freewrite with this later. My parents made me stop.
