Say it Succinctly with Six

EDITED - 1/25/09

Just got an email from the assistant editor on the Six Word Memoir site. They will be featuring my submissions on the front page for at least a day. YAY!

from a prompted writing exercise at A Cup of Words, Monday night Writers' Group

Six Word Memoirs - Not Quite What I Was Planning



I free wrote several of these, then arranged them into a couple of makeshift poems:

Stranger stares back from my mirror.
I look younger and feel older.
I am learning to let go.
When I wasn’t looking time flew.
Wonder whether you really see me.

----------

Give me pen and I’ll write.
Ink like blood flowing from pen.
A blank page is an invitation.
Stories captivate and draw me in.
I hear voices, I talk back.
Hot tea, black ink, white page.
I like words better than candy.
Words like succinct make me smile.
My muse hates deadlines. She hides.
One more line, and I’ll stop.

Congrats TaunaLen! That's fabulous!

My favorite line:

"My muse hates deadlines. She hides."

LOL! -- I know her twin... ;)
