Friday Freewrite #10 – Submerged

August 19, 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 December of 2010 in Concord, 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.

    “What am I doing down here? How did I get here? Did someone reject me, or just forget about me? Oh well. It’s kinda fun down here anyway, I can see all the fish and there are no people filling me with their junk. It’s a bit cold though, and I think I’m starting to rust some. That’s okay, it’ll add character. I will be unique. I wish these plants would stop hovering around me though. This must be what it’s like to constantly have the paparazzi around. Ick. Maybe in the spring someone will pull me out of here and I can experience something new.”
