The Initial 7 Minute Writing Exercise (the bold is the good stuff): Brand- Barbie/Directive- Sheep
sheep. Living on a farm with other animals. Kinda boring. Eating shitty food. Muddy. Mud cakes. Making mud cakes when young. Sharing your food with other animals. Eating from a troth. Get in the zone, focus. Push it more…………… more coffee may help but im stuck on this computer for 6 more minutes. Poor planning…………. Farm life……. Farmers. Hay corn fields wheat peanuts. Suffolk- planters peanuts. Living in Suffolk was horrible when I was young, its not as bad now. Planters is from there- my sisters worked in the first store by planters. they sold the copany to someone else. Make money monay! Sheep……….. sheering their wool to keep us warm. So helpless. What is difference between sheeps and lambs anyway……………I shouldn’t have mind mapped right before this- think god for autocorrect. I burned up all my good ideas already. Sheep. Fuck sheep. They are so innocent. They are slow. I have never seen a sheep run. Why would they need to run?……. what does a sheep eat? I bet its gross. Do people eat sheep meet, if so what is it called? How does a sheep relate to Barbie. She is a sheep fucker. Riding a sheep? Wool keeps Barbie warm. Blankets. Itchy. Not from bed bugs. Scratchy. I keep picturing my great uncles farm even though he didn’t have sheep. He just farmed sheep. My mom had a pet goat which isn’t a sheep either. Would seheep make good pets? They always have shit stuck in their hair. Fuck that. Baaaaaa’ing all the time. Goats milk– still nto a sheep. I keep associating goats and sheep. Dum dum dummy. …… keep going. ….. ghs.ejijefie blah blah bahl. Sheep!!!!!!!! How old are sheep. Where did they come from……. Farming. Wheat. Wheaties. Get strong and live long. Finally….. times up… now!

**THE INSPIRATIONAL CHILDHOOD STORY CREATED**
Living on a farm, (while) making mud cakes when (I was) young and eating from a troth, (I drank) more coffee. Living in Suffolk was horrible. My sister worked in the first store by Planters sheering their wool. Thank God for auto-correct (because) I burned up (everyone that was) innocent (because) I have never seen a sheep run. Do (other) people eat sheep meat? (It makes me) itchy, (but) not from bed bugs, (from) my great uncles farm. My mom had a pet goat stuck in their hair. (So, drink) goats milk; get strong and live long!
(NOTE: This post shows the progression of a writing exercise, and how subconscious thoughts and ideas can evolve into a story. After the initial 7 minutes of continuous writing, I went to work. When I got home, I read over what I wrote and highlighted what i thought was interesting, that was “The Good Stuff”. The story that was created, conveys a time when a child could have benefited from having a friend and companion like Barbie. Who knows, if the child had a companion like Barbie, everyone that was innocent may not have gotten burned… )
