Freaky Freewrite Friday

Tips: 0.25 INK Postby mombie on Thu May 07, 2020 7:06 pm

What is freewriting? Well, freewriting is essentially a braindump of words. If you need to look this up, here is a great information piece about the importance of freewriting. Essentially, I will provide a topic in some way, shape, or form - this can be a word or a picture. I will try to do this on a weekly basis. The goal is to just dump your creative brain all over the place, no matter how silly or whatever it might be. It's supposed to not make sense. This will help you dump out your thoughts, and you might even get an idea or two out of it! This isn't EXACTLY freewriting, which is really more of a process of writing out a few ideas, then picking a word from those sentences and doing it again and again, I feel like it will provide a feeling of freewriting.

The Rules
  • don't think, just type whatever comes into your mind
  • write for at least 5-10 minutes straight
  • do not force anything because it's not supposed to be organized
  • grammar doesn't matter at all
  • write down every idea that comes to your head, even nonsensical ones
  • keep your hands moving - don't stop
  • time yourself
  • don't be shy! Have fun
  • if you come up with a cool idea from all of this, share it!

Here is an example of a freewrite

It's not friday, but I will open up a topic anyway!!!


You have landed on one of the planets in our solar system, and all avenues for communication with Earth has been lost. What happens now?

5 Minute Freewrite

So here we are, I don't know why I am even in space to begin with. maybe i am an astronaught. or maybe this is some kind of movie about being lost in space. I don't know. How many planets are there in the solar system? Poor pluto. I miss pluto. What about.... I don't know. There is nothing left to do right now other than to just find a planet to land one. What kind of planet should I land on? Obviously it has to be something made up of rock. you know, i barely passed astronomy class so I don't even know which ones are made up of rock. I only know that jupiter has a big red spot for an endless storm. How crazy is that even? How crazy is anything about space? Maybe I need some help. I would use google but I have to keep typing so let's land on jupiter. Oh no, one of my friends just got sucked into some kind of storm. What was that red spot again? I think it is a hurricane so we will just go with that. Now I am by myself and I don't have anyone to talk to. Boy this sucks a lot. Someone help me because now I have no friends because they didn't listen to me. they must have failed astronomy too. it's a pretty hard class. I thought learning about space would be easy - you know, planets and stars and stuff. but no, it's not. just like that time that i took oceanography because i was pregnant and needed an easy class. oh, it was not easy. i am surprised i passed it. who knew that there was so much to know about oceans. anyway back to space. well, my friend is gone and i have no way back to earth. I suppose that I will just die. good bye earth, it was a little nice knowing you. i guess.

An idea that I got from this is: The year is 3052 A.D., and Mars is just now opening up its first attempt at colonization. Everything has been set, and all they need is their experimental population to begin living there. A shuttle carrying one-hundred passengers to settle on Mars for the experimental phase of the Mars Residential Project takes a turn for the worst. Since Jupiter, now having googled it, is made up of gas, we obviously can't have the story land there. However, we can have the story begin on the otherside of Mars, which is not yet built for residency. Over 80% of the passengers die after the crash-landing, all communications are lost, and now they have to figure out a way to brazen this unknown territory and find the MRP zone.

Here is your picture. I should have posted it Friday, but I needed a serious screen break after completing 5 finals online this week. Remember: all you really need to do is take five to ten minutes, 15 at the most (without stopping or taking your fingers from the keyboard), to just write out whatever comes to your head! It really does relieve writer's block.

10-minute freewrite

I should have had coffee before starting this off because the coffee pot just got done but here I am doing a freewrite. yay. so monkey monkey monkey what does a monkey have to do with anything at all. most of all, why is he on a computer and who cares that he is on a computer. dud. what would he even be looking at? I bet it is something stupid because monkeys seem like they would have a very simple.... i don't know what i was going to say to be honest. something along the lines of monkeys being easily amused by the absurdities of the internet. i am sure that they would find something stupid to look at because sometimes humans are stupid and maybe they will find it all funny and wonder why they are in cages instead of us. i mean humans are super fascinating. put us all in a zoo and a bunch of monkeys will come looking at us like who is the dummy now. do some tricks. lets see who can do the dumbest shit because with humans it seems like we are at a competition of who can do dumber shit than the next person. it really is stupid when you think about it. why do we even exist. how do we even continue to exist. what would happen if we used a little more of our brain. speaking of brains i remember that being able to use only ten percent of the brain is a myth. i learned that is my neurogenic speech disorders class. who would even believe something like that. i did, i believed it and now i feel silly of it. the brain is super fasinating and i am not sure who said that we only used ten percent of it. but if we did only use ten percent of it, hypothetically speaking, i wonder what would happen if we could use 1 more percent of it. will be unlock super powers or some strange higher state of being? I don't know. this was supposed to be about monkeys but here i am thinking about the complexities of the brain and this crazy thing we call humanity. i wonder if monkeys, were they able to use their brain like a human, would have shows that feature funny humans. americas funniest home videos run by a monkey would be hilarious. then again, we don't really have to imagine it because we see humans doing dumb shit all of the time thanks to the internet. i think the internet made it worse. god i hope my children don't end up doing something stupid. i would really just hang my head in shame. you see all these things that kids do and you laugh wit hout imagining that your kids are eventually going to do dumb shit. now i am thinking about my kids. monkeys don't have to think about their kids doing dumb things, but i did take a class on primates and primate behaviors. i don't know why, but it was pretty interesting learning about it. i suppose the baby monkeys are sort of like little kids. i remember them doing silly things. but monkeys are different of course, but maybe not so different. you know there really is a good comparison of gender stereotypes in monkeys that i remember. it was actually pretty interesting not that i think gender stereotypes are a good thing. the male monkeys were were much like the men of today. not all men, but i couldn't help but think of my husband sometimes and the things he does. also, why do monkeys hump everything. some of them even put pee on their wrists to mark their territory. it really is kind of gross. monkeys are ool but gross. i wonder what computer monkey is. i don't know, but i think i am at the end of my time with only fifty seconds left to go and i still have no idea what i am going to do to finish the last character i am working on here, but at least my brain feels free. good bye computer monkey and have fun looking at tik-toc. i would reccomdend for a good laugh. it is a plague.

Tips: 1.00 INK Postby nonconformingrole on Mon May 25, 2020 12:25 pm

I wish the water company would fix their stupid online portal, I cannot pay the bill and I really do not want to have to call them tomorrow. I'm sure the person who picks up the phone will be plenty pleasant, but I hate phone calls. I hate my wife's keyboard. writing on a gaming keyboard is not fun. i want my laptop back. curse my children for breaking it. my children are being suspiciously quiet... My wife can handle them, it's fine, she's their parent too, she's their parent too. I want cheese. Or chocolate. Both? Both. Maybe neither. Probably just need to drink a glass of water. When was the last time i had any water? Right before sitting down at the computer. Probably do want chocolate, then. It's already getting hot outside. Why can't i live further north in the summer? I support living in different places based on the seasons. I'm really scatterbrained today. I wonder if the online payment portal has loaded. Probably not. Maybe I should take a nap today. Maybe that's my problem. I did stay up too late last night.

Spoiler: show
The online payment portal never loaded properly.
