Why I Write in Six Words


The first sentence I published appeared in the book “Six Word Memoirs on Love and Heartbreak by Writers Famous and Obscure.” Famous: Dan Savage, Elizabeth Gilbert and Janice Dickinson. Obscure: Me.

“Six Word Memoirs” tell your truth. To honour Smith Magazine’s theme of “telling a story in six words” and to thank Harper-Collins for publishing my first piece, this is:

“Why I Write in Six Words”

Time flies by when I’m writing.

Keeps my spirit alive and happy.

Finally getting my voice – out there.

Love sound of fingertips on keyboard.

Nothing else matters when I write.

Found my flow, following my bliss.
