This week’s Daily Post writing challenge presents an interesting idea – writing a story in exactly fifty words. No more, no less.
Here is the link to the challenge: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/04/07/writing-challenge-fifty/#more-72221
Now, for my “fifty”:
I touch the flower to my nose, its petals enveloping my senses, its scent reminding me of home. I am far away now. I will probably never return. My world is changing and I must change with it. I take my sister’s hand and walk, I walk far from here.
Have a lovely day.
I want to tell you why I do what I do – why I paint, sketch, craft, whatever. And why I put it on this corner of the internet for you to see.
So why do I paint or sketch or craft?
I love the feel of the paint on the brush, smoothing over the paper.
I love mixing things and making something new. I love experimenting and doing my own thing, which sometimes happens to be what no one’s done before. I can’t keep myself from the paint and the pencils.
Sticking with the crowd isn’t my thing. I like to think outside the box and create outside the box.
My random brain sometimes creates weird paintings or sketches. Some are just plain ugly.
I’m OK with that.
Because they’re mine.
But why do I want you all to see my paintings and my other art?
Maybe it has something to do with how my English teacher puts it – “You’re not writing for yourself.” You’re writing for other people.
So I’m not painting for myself. I’m not snapping photos for myself. I’m creating for the world. I’m creating for you.
