The Freestyle Writing Challenge

Food Abuse has got another challenge nomination from fellow blogger Impeccablemua (read her about me here and please follow )about freestyle writing, the details of the same are given below-

The concept of free style writing revolves around the central idea of putting down words that may or may not relate to a particular topic and within a certain time period regardless of spelling or perhaps also grammar. I’ve written pages and pages during my English lessons in high school with all respect to my free-flowing thoughts and overcrowded brain with tons of ideas, questions and theories. The teacher would just call out a particular topic at the start of the stop watch and we would all write and write and write till the beep goes and she says STOP NOW! However we were encouraged to aim at writing with the correct spellings and grammar to score in the activity.

Ouchhh!!
Ouchhh!! (Yes, Im stealing your image too :P)

So here goes the RULES of this challenge:

  1. Open an MS Word document
  2. Set a stop watch or your mobile to 5 minutes or 10 minutes whichever challenge you think you can beat.
  3. You topic is at the foot of this post BUT DO NOT SCROLL DOWN TO SEE IT UNTIL YOU ARE READY WITH A TIMER.
  4. Fill the word doc with as much words as you want. once you began writing do not stop even to turn.
  5. Do not cheat by going back and correcting spellings and grammar with spell check in MS WORD (it is only meant for you to reflect on your own control of sensible thought flow and for you to reflect on your ability to write the right spelling and stick to grammar rules)
  6. You may or may not pay attention to punctuation and capitals. However if you do, it would be best.
  7. At the end of your post write down ‘No. Of words =_____’ so that we would have an idea of how much you can write within the time frame.
  8. Do not forget to copy paste the entire passage on your blog post with a new Topic for your nominees and copy paste these rules with your nominations (at least 5 bloggers).

GOOD LUCK!

Once you have written yours, you can always read and compare how your friends have written and how much they have managed to write.

When you read mine below you would know what free style writing is all about. Trust me this can get lame, to sane to insane to magical with ideas I don’t know where they came up from. That is how crazy this gets. Once you start STOP NOT TILL IT’S TIME.

What i came out with 5 minutes on Watching TV as my topic:

A tool by the western media to captivate and fool the masses, people tend to see only what a few selected ones want to show them. I somehow lost taste of TV maybe 7 years back when I was out for my education and I did not have this asset at my diposal. Since then I just don’t feel likle watching it except for selected news, infometirc & soccer matches although I would love to follow F1 and MOTOGP as I used to do as a kid but thanks to procrastination the tv in my room sleeps an eldless sleep.

I remember watching tv as a 2 or 3 years old when there were onlyu 2 channels DDnational and DDnews; On DDnews there used to be a news for deaf and dumb at around 11am where everybody would laugh their lung out when they used to talk of mulayam singh yadav on DDnational there used to be Ghalib played by naseruddin shah and few other shows were aired in between there was this sad inverted balck brinjal kind of image with a black dot used to stick to the tv for hours and hours as there was nothing to show.

Total words:200

      Sorry sister, I can’t understand the initial questions you asked, could you try and rephrase them for me please? 🙂 you write so well I’m sure people would follow anyways; see you even create challenges, what more could 1 expect?

    • impeccablemua

      I was just amused.. its my opinion i shared it was not a question. . I thought u heard me through that..my bad … i was like ” wow hw cool is ur writing” that kind of an exclamation. .. that’s all… uve written a solid paragrapgh nd usually for free style writing we write shallow stuff .. like spoken english in very simpke terms… thats y … hope u got it now

      • Bilal

        Thankyou sister you are so kind to say that, I think my writing is still very shallow and honestly I find your writing way better than mine :).. I though I wrote only 200 and that so less, while you wrote a lot more than mine 😀

  2. Indah Susanti

    Peace be upon you bro, thank you very much for nominating me 😛 Be happy !!

    P.S. (The name Bilal is a Muslim name, am I right?) ahh I see a sign of the cross…This surprised me 🙂

    • Bilal

      Peace be upon you sister, welcome.. Right, wasn’t isa alai salam a muslim too? 🙂

      • Semra Polat

        Do you say that Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants were Jews or Christians? Say, “Are you more knowing or is Allah ?” And who is more unjust than one who conceals a testimony he has from Allah ? And Allah is not unaware of what you do.Surat Al-Baqarah [2:140]

        Indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam.Surat ‘Ali `Imran [3:19]

          • Semra Polat

            The belief in the words of “La ilaha illallah” cause one to enter Islam, to refute all deities and accept Allah as the only God and Lord of the Universe and what it contains. No one can be a Muslim without believing and adhering to the tenets of of La ilaha illallah….so bro if you say La ilaha illallah….yes you are a muslim, Alhamdülillah 🙂

          • Bilal

            You got me wrong sister, when did I say I’m not a muslim? 🙂 you were talking of cross ie Jesus/isa a.s. and that’s where I mentioned he was a muslim too 🙂

          • Bilal

            The thing to notice is not the cross image but the message written around it 😀 and again if isa a.s. was a muslim too, what difference does it make? 🙂

          • Semra Polat

            😀 cuz you’re trying to understand me wrong….take care , wish you happy Ramadan Mubarak 😉

  5. Yusra Gulab Jamman 🍰 🐒

    Completely agree with the first commenter about your writing being awesome, especially for a free style “gibberish” challenge… The first idea which came into your head was that TV is a tool used to control the masses? 🙂 Sounds like you have the mind of an intelligent revolutionary! 🙂

    • Bilal

      Lol, it’s a little hard for me to digest what you say.. But all I can say is thankyou jazakallah khair 🙂 .. I hope to improve, and keep my foot firm on the ground.. Hope I can do that .
