The One-Minute Writer

I just discovered this blog in my travels. I'm already on a New Year's Resolution kick: making my list, printing my 2010 calendar. I'll be adding this one to the list. One minute, that's it. I think I can spare that. They give a daily prompt, and have a cute little timer that runs for one minute.
Today's is Bottle: What would you like to bottle and sell? Be creative. (Feasibility is optional.)
Here's what I wrote (remember it's only a minute, so there's no time for editing!):
My children's laughter rolling over the sun-drenched grass as they run barefoot to the swimming pool. Their squeals of delight as the first drops of water bead upon their sun-kissed skin. I would bottle it up to warm my soul on cold, frost-bitten winter days.
Guess I'm already pining for warm summer days!

Awesome find! I think most writers struggle with making the time to do it and then "feeling" the mood...this kind of exercise can be done whenever and doesn't allow you make excuses- I love it! Thanks for sharing!
