So, I get these writing prompts from mysterious places. The latest one said write about yourself in six words. My first thought was;
Whoooaaaa! I have to be succinct.
Which is six words if counting.
next I wrote about my life
nobody knows their way before starting
Guinness girl loves men and babies
babies made me into my Mom
I live for love and horses
I only swim in freezing waters
I live with crazy inside me
even fire can burn too brightly
shiny candy shell covers inner darkness
born wild, nothing mundane holds me
then I wrote about my heart
true love is only for takers
where love resides, all demons flee
don't look and think you know
then I wrote about my art
writing lust overcomes uncertainty. I unmask.
in words, I find my magic
come to me, I'll write you
then I wrote about my God
faith floods and washes fear away
where none reside, I am complete
all are born, few truly live
Then I wrote my finished novel
Love happened. She turned. Wrong way.
What about you? What words appear?
Can you write you in six?
