Day Nine of the WWFC Blog Writing Challenge. The subject? “15 Minutes.”
What can you do in 15 minutes?
You can finish the bear claw your mother gave you as a special pre-Lenten treat. Then stare at your laptop while you contemplate 15 minutes.
You can glance at the TV, which is currently playing Gray’s Anatomy on demand. And shake your head at the absurdity of the subject this week.
While you think about a subject for “15 minutes,” in fifteen minutes, you can absently mindedly pet your dog. Who seems to be inching closer and closer to the computer on your lap.
And finally, after 15 minutes of thinking about what to write about for “15 minutes,” your writing space has morphed. Your pajama top is covered in dog hair. And there is a warm dog in your lap.
Do you think Tolkien started like this?
