What is this?

A way to share tiny moments, ideas, stories; things you see, feel, overhear, realize, think ...
Write fast. Post from your smartphone. Add a photograph. Some options:


Tell (show) us what just happened.
Write a story using only 500 characters.
Write a six-word story.
Share a weird thought.
Or a moment that amused.

Go for it!



A tiny moment, story

I feel like everytime I'm around someone I love I have to hug them a little harder.
I think I'm writing in my room too much...
A friend from when I was little died of suicide today. I cried and then ran two miles when I thought I couldn't run any.

- what lasting impacts will this virus leave on society?
- I need to shower
- I don't want to shower
- I will only eat toast with a great deal of butter on it
- or ice cream
- or mac and cheese
- I want to go to school and hug every person I see

Totally relatable.

anyone else having trouble writing during these times? i have like four ongoing screenplays and usually i would love the chance to do more work on them but everything is so chaotic that i feel like i don't want to add any additional conflict into the world, even to tell a story. you know?
I recently finished the actual writing part of a novella and a 10-minute play, but I understand how you feel. This is totally changing the way I write because sometimes it feels like there isn't anything else to write about. ahhhhhhhh.....

- just realized how awful my pixie cut (which requires a monthly trim to keep it short) is going to look by the end of this
- had two video chats today which made life better
- I'm still loving my exercise app
- today my butt is sore
- did some drawing with my friends via video chat
- set up plans for more video chatting
- going to watch movie with family now

Social Distancing Journal 4.3.20
-I've begun to think that no world exists except the walls of my house and my fenced in yard
-I have a new dream for life
-I don't know if I will succeed at my dream
-I have a new hairstyle for lack of ANYTHING else to do
-It helps that you still remember me.
The new hairstyle thing is such a mood. I have short hair and am seriously pondering what I'm going to do as it slowly grows out into a mildly horrifying mullet for lack of open salons. I've always kind of wanted to shave my head, and very few people are gonna see my except my housemate for a while, soooo. Yeah. Adventures are always available, even in quarantine.

… Haha! I can relate. I have unruly curls and I've let them go wild these past few weeks. My friend tried to dye her hair. It
was suppose to be platinum but it turned out orange... an adventure indeed.

Ha yes. Two years ago I shaved my head and it's finally about shoulder length now. I was Eleven from stranger things for Halloween that year!

- this week felt like it took a month
- can I survive 11(?) more weeks?
- having a marimba does make things better
- really craving mac and cheese even though we had some yesterday
- kinda glad my Health teacher is forcing us to log our exercise because otherwise, I wouldn't be exercising
- legs are sore from doing squats and lunges
- really grateful for my workout app
- should probably get out of bed
- but I have no motivation
All of this is an entire mood. Especially loved these bits:
- this week felt like it took a month (Interesting, my days have felt oddly shorter...)
- can I survive 11(?) more weeks? (I hope so; this writing is so relatable it'd be a shame to lose it!)
- having a marimba does make things better (so random, so marvelous)
- really craving mac and cheese even though we had some yesterday (entire mood)
- kinda glad my Health teacher is forcing us to log our exercise because otherwise, I wouldn't be exercising (makes me mildly wish I had the same... but not that much)
- legs are sore from doing squats and lunges (epsom salt baths and stretches!)
- really grateful for my workout app (same tho)
- should probably get out of bed (eghhhhhhh rest is key)
- but I have no motivation (Valid. Again. Rest is key, especially when the world is stressed out.

SDJ March, no, April 2.
--this week has blurred together . I can no longer remember which day it is, or how many days ago something was.
--Also took to trying to plan out a schedule for the day. I'm usually a spontaneous person, but surprisingly I'm getting sick of
all the free time
-- have started multiple writing/video projects as well as baking to keep busy.
--made blueberry quarantine mcmuffins for the fam. they were thoroughly enjoyable
1. Yes. Same. Feels like summer vacation, but with work, still. And not so much time with friends.
2. Reasonable move. NICE.
3. YES. That's so good.
4. Blueberry quarantine mcmuffins? Like with egg on them? Interesting combo of sweet and savory. I'm here for it.
2 days ago
Thank you :) Nope not with egg, basically anything I bake during quarantine time has a 'mc' in front- Don't ask
me why- I have no idea.
Alsooo Welcome to YWP!
