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.
