A writer’s world

Reena’s exploration challenge

As a writer, you pile perspective upon perspective,
And perch on the lofty precipice of dangerous empathy,

Random epiphanies,
And random questions that test your sense of identity,

Like a headless hasaean hunting thoughts, you decapitate the minds of good and evil alike.
You are insane, yet also the therapist.
You come from a tribe of headhunters; so you will never need a shrink.

Craft me a tale,

That I may see who I am.

Craft me a story;

Of who I can be.

~Twenty-word-tale~

Bubble’s twenty word Tuesday

© judeitakali


Reena asked us to use any of the three phrases below to inspire something we write. I liked them all so I used all three;

  • “His thought process was on so many levels that he gave himself a phobia of heights.”
  • “Random words in front of other random words create a random sentence.
  • “I come from a tribe of head-hunters, so I will never need a shrink.”

Bubble asked us to use the word ‘Craft’ for our twenty word tale.

Happy Sunday everyone.

  15. Sure, this is what writing feels like at times, since you have to come from all angles and “perspectives” at once: “You are insane, yet also the therapist.”
