3-Part Weekend Freewrite - 5/7/2022


3 Part.png

Hello, Weekend Freewriters.

This version of the weekend freewrite gives you three prompts you are weaving into one story. Write 5 minutes for each prompt and keep the next one a mystery until your 5 minutes of writing are up.

The three prompts are in one post - there is lots of space between them. No peeking 😉

Weekend FreeWrite - The First Sentence - scroll down for the prompt

As many of you know, the weekend freewrite is a different beast if you do the three prompt option. Have fun!!

And remember - you always can do a single prompt. Look for the blue graphics.

If this is the first time you came upon one of our freewrite posts click here to read the original post.

This is the process: You get a prompt. You set a timer and start writing, without thinking, without stopping. Write for 5 min about whatever that prompt brings to mind.

This is how the weekend freewrite is different. You get 3 prompts and write 5 minutes on each prompt creating one story.


Prompt First Sentence: She has moved slowly away: relunctantly, it seems to me.

  • Set timer: 5 Minutes
  • Write down the prompt sentence:
  • This is your first sentence. Continue writing the story presenting itself to you.
  • Continue writing without stopping
  • Then scroll down for the second prompt - no peaking!!

The second prompt is- The interference. It will direct your story in a new direction. Write for 5 more minutes.

If you haven't finished the first prompt - stop!!

Write 5 minutes on the first prompt before continuing!!

Promise, you finished the first prompt before looking!


Okay, it is time for the second prompt

"You can use my car." says Mark.

You know what to do

  • Set your timer again and write for 5 more minutes.
  • Write a continuation of the story you started.
  • When finished, scroll down for the next prompt.

The third part is a dramatic twist. Continue writing where that prompt takes you but still create one story. Write for 5 more minutes.

You promise? You wrote 10 minutes so far - using the first two prompts?

Okay, here is the third one


Prompt: a waft of strong perfume

  • Write 5 more minutes wherever the story will take you.
  • Fix your spelling and such.
  • Publish your post - preferably in the Freewrite Community
  • Use #freewrite and #weekendfreewrite
  • Leave a link to your post in the comments of this post.

As always, don’t judge your writing and just see where it will take you.

More Explanation

When we tried this for the first time, I was asked some good questions about this thing - this weekend freewrite.

That made me realize that this kind of prompt writing might feel very weird if you haven't been taking writing classes or have been around a writing community

Here is a bit more of an explanation: The several prompt-approach to freewriting is an exercise to take us out of what our usual thinking pattern and open new neuropathways in a sense. It forces us out of our comfort level and we write in a style or genre or about topics we never would on our own.

A second prompt makes us explore a completely new direction and challenges us to connect the story.

The third prompt forces us to once again to shift directions and figure out how to bring this story together and to an end.

It is kind of like driving to work on a familiar road. But suddenly, there is a detour and we end up driving through new neighborhoods and seeing all kinds of amazing things we never knew were there.

We often get stuck in shoulds and what we were told by a parent or teacher what a story, or writing, needs to be like...... you fill in the blanks. Or we just write that what we are familiar with.

This kind of freewrite helps to open the creative forces and let go of any restrictions we put on ourselves...

Whoever is directly controlling the V2K told me to kill myself.
They told me if I killed myself now it would save the lives of countless others.
Saying the longer I wait to kill myself the more people will suffer.

They are reckless and should have shown the proper media what they had before taking me hostage for 5 years. I know there are many in prison that dont deserve to be there because of this. Your stay in prison will not be fun @battleaxe and friends. People are going to want you dead when they find out what you did. I hope you die a slow painful death. You sick mother fuckers.


Its a terrorist act on American soil while some say its not real or Im a mental case. Many know its real. This is an ignored detrimental to humanity domestic and foreign threat. Ask informed soldiers in the American military what their oath is and tell them about the day you asked me why. Nobody has I guess. Maybe someone told ill informed soldiers they cant protect America from military leaders in control with ill intent. How do we protect locked up soldiers from telling the truth?
