60 Second Writing Challenge


I saw this on Sacha Black’s Blog. It’s her “Writespiration” for this week. I couldn’t help it — I had to take this challenge. It is so cool. And I’m grateful to Sacha for introducing me to the site, One Word, which says:

Simple. You’ll see one word at the top of the following screen.

You have sixty seconds to write about it.

Click go and the page will load with the cursor in place.

Don’t think. Just write.


Below is what poured out in my minute. Try this exercise, bookmark this site, and remember, as with all good freewriting exercises, no editing allowed. And have fun.


One Word:



Silence. Beeping, hacking, coughing, talking, yelling, beeping. Fleeting moments. Time is gone. Walls close in. Hoping. Waiting. For silence.
