i've come across several blogs and some of them have whatever those things are that get sent from person-to-person that encourage people to write either lists or short pieces of writing.
i'll be truthful and say that for the most part i find them uninspiring exercises that don't really require me to think. at their worst, they feel more like surveys having that "fill-in-the-blank" feeling about them.
however, i came across one that actually felt really good and had tons and tons of really good written responses so i'll share it with you here.
to begin, you need to go to the blog that goes by the name six sentences. there you'll enter a world in which short, rich and sometimes intense pieces of writing are featured, not to mention a kazillion links to things "six". so go there first, read the incredible writing. then - craft one of your own and submit it.
will you become instantly rich and famous? no and no.
by the way, while you're here i should tell those of you who come from well-educated, highly-trained writing backgrounds that the golden fish perspective on what a sentence looks like is probably very different from yours. here's a place that describes my knowing of "sentence" in one big long cluttered fulsome nutshell! and that's why yours will likely be picked to appear on the "six sentences" webpage long before mine!!!!
have fun - oh and visit the golden fish sister blog "flow"!!!
