15 Minute Writing Prompt

I didn’t know what to write for this blog post so I searched up “things to write about” on Google. I got a bunch of links to a bunch of articles giving me ideas, but none of them stood out. I finally got to this one article that caught my eye. The title was “When You Don’t Know What To Write, Write About Your Insecurities” by Joe Bunting. It seemed interesting so I decided to try it. I would have to pinpoint one insecurity and write about it within 15 minutes. I was watching Big Bang Theory while writing it so I just used the main characters’ names. Here is what I wrote within those 15 minutes:

Sheldon had printed out four copies of his definition essay for his first round of peer revisions today. He had a hard time writing it because he didn’t know how to write a definition essay. He had read models but still couldn’t grasp the concept of how to write one. He was worried of what his peers would think when they read his essay. He put a lot of time and effort into it but he still thought it wasn’t good enough.

When he sat down at his desk, he took out his four copies. His table mates had their copies out too. It was time to decide who would share their essay first. Leonard, one of his table mates, started singing eenie-meenie-miney-moe while pointing at each person after every syllable. Sheldon was relieved when Leonard’s finger didn’t land on him last. Howard had to share his first. They read his essay and gave him feedback on how they liked it and what he needed to improve on. Once they gave Howard his papers back, Leonard did eenie-meenie-miney-moe again but excluded Howard. Raj was next. They did the same with Raj’s essay as they did with Howard’s. Then it was just Leonard and Sheldon who had to share their essay. Sheldon was scared, but he decided to be brave and volunteer to go next. He passed out his copies to his table mates and they proceeded to do the same as they did with the other essays. The feedback was great. His table mates liked the essay and helped him out on how to improve it to make it even better. Sheldon was relieved. He was grateful to have table mates that were there for him and helped him become a better writer.
