I planned this blog for New Year’s Eve, but the Captain wisely decided it would be a week of little play and reran the Pirates Christmas Carol. But, I’m not one to waste a blog I had fun putting together! So, a little late, but it never hurts to consider the year before!
Yup! Some weeks ago we were all bi*ching about the epitaph thing. Well, this sorta links into that. I have this book, bought a few years ago, called “Not Quite What I Was Planning - Six-Word Memoirs by Writers Famous and Obscure.”
You got it!
Sebastian Junger: I asked. They answered. I wrote.
I loved this one, by Deepak Chopra: Danced in fields of infinite possibilities. (I want to have written those words! I think mine would be I wrote worlds of unbounded possibilities.)
How ‘bout this? Brought it to a boil, often. Mario Batalli!
Or this… Revenge is living well without you. Joyce Carol Oats.
Stephen Colbert wrote Well, I thought it was funny.
Ok, and this. Fearlessness is the mother of reinvention from Arianna Huffington.
I can really get where she is coming from, considering the journey she has taken!
So, we’re a week into 2011. I could make this a really hard blog and ask you to compose an haiku of your latest MS. (I did this, it’s sorta fun!)
But a haiku takes a while. I’m gonna be kind and stick to the epitaph.
Try this challenge…Six words to sum up the year. Or to sum up the current writing progress. To sum up the month…? Just six words!
Or, since this is playing on the 7th, how about six words to sum up what you are planning to manifest for the year. Only six words now!
Here’s mine… The Kraken’s Mirror, first sale bliss!
For 2011… This year piratepunk rises to conquer!
