5 Minutes

By: Nicholas McGrath

Status: In Progress

Summary:

Every day I will write for five minutes straight without any forethought to my subject matter. Whatever is written in that time frame will be uploaded. Over time this will amount to something in the form of progress, and that is what all writers love.

    Very refreshing to see this kind of idea, no real commitment to any story, but there's just so many ideas in this collection that it doesn't matter. I always try and imagine what happens next with short, abrupt chapters, so you could probably imagine my excitement when I came across this! It's unique, fresh, and even in those 500 seconds per story, you write in such a pleasant style! Thank you for uploading these.

    I love it! It also helps shut off your inner editor, doesn't it? I did a similar thing every day for a while, but instead of spending five minutes, I would just write until I filled a hundred words, and then upload it. Some of these "drabbles" have been posted to Sparkatale now, and I do them whenever I have time. Great job with these, though! I might come back later and visit them more closely, but for now, I'll just say that the dialogue flowed really well, which is something that's really important to me.
