Six Minute Story

A Cure for Writer's Block™

Learn More Write Now Read a Story


Writing a story in six minutes – with a ticking timer and a surprise prompt – is an adrenaline rush.

It will invigorate your mind for the entire day, helping you create more (and more and more) original art.

Which is, as Kurt Vonnegut said, "a way to make your soul grow."
