If you recall the last contest, was the brain child of my therapist, David. Well, I asked him about this one, and it went something like this:
“I need a contest idea…got anything? Let me just go on the record as saying I can’t take that two sentence horror idea… I read some and they freak me the hell out!”
“Well, okay. How about a two sentence uplifting story that’s not full of saccharine? You know all that sweetness might freak you out too.”
“So true, but I don’t know if I can provide any examples of that in my current state of mind.”
“That’s why you should make it that… I think you should do something that serves a purpose. Make this work for you. Take a few days to work on it … no puppies or unicorns allowed…”
Well, from there it got even shorter…
The contest is now an original, non-saccharine, uplifting or inspirational, use of six words. No more, no less, and no listing words…ie they have to make collective sense.
It can be celebratory: “Weeha, Ma made pancakes for breakfast!
It can be resistant: “…Not adding insult to injury today!”
It can be truthful: ” My priorities improved as I matured.”
It can be instructional: “Practice intelligent communication. Think then speak.”
It can be a bit of advice: “Word of advice: Go for it!”
It can be a statement: “Flawed, and that’s pretty damned good!”
It can be Earth shatteringly revelatory: “Secret to life: reading and chocolate”
It can be personal: “After twenty years together, still friends.”
You get the idea… so now…
WHAT YOU GONNA DO?
Write an original, non-saccharine, uplifting or inspirational, use of six words.
No more, no less, and no listing words…ie they have to make collective sense.
