Friday Freewrite #18 – Listening

October 21, 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 question:

What sounds do you hear around you right now when you close your eyes and take a minute to listen?


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.

    Right now I hear Kesha playing from my laptop speakers. I also hear my parents watching TV. I can’t tell what show they’re watching though. It’s not loud enough for me to hear over my music. I can also hear my typing. Aside from those things I can’t really hear anything else right now.
    I think ice was just clinking in one of my parent’s glass. And my dad’s change and keys are jingling as he is walking. I can hear the footsteps on the floor.
