Friday Freewrite #23 – Jail

February 17, 2012

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 would you be willing to go to jail for?


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.

    I really can’t think of anything that I would be willing to go to jail for right now. If I did go it’d probably be for some protest or rally or something. I don’t know. My family is always fighting for civil rights and workers rights, and I know a few family members went to jail for things like that, probably in the 60s. My mom has told me that if I get arrested for something like that I get one bail out no questions asked. Pretty sure anything else I’m SOL. I guess if I saw someone being bullied, and was defending them and ended up going to jail I wouldn’t fight that.
