IT’S CONTEST TIME!

 

unnamed (9)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…”

“Maybe.”

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…

unnamed (59)Once again, David will be the judge. 

I have to come up with a prize but will think of something by the weekend…promise… and it will be fun…or not….or well, I just don’t know yet do I?

  1. I love the contest idea, Ivy–great challenge–though I don’t care a fig about prizes (speaking of which, I made some Date-Fig bars that were pretty tasty)! God bless you and dear Doug–I’ll think up some 6 words… 🙂
