I know, I know.
I heard about Pippa. Another one bites the dust. It’s why I keep extras in the Crush Bin. You never know when one’ll haul off and get engaged on you. Everyone from Summer Sanders to Paula Creamer to Cher Lloyd to Lizzy O’Leary to Elizabeth Davis to … well, you see what I’m dealing with.
I mentioned Pippa – she of royalty and extraordinary physical gifts – in my email to y’all about this month’s six words prompt.
Every month, I compile a post called 6 words. Ernest Hemingway inspired it. He claimed any story can be told in six words. No more, no less. I turn to bloggers, friends, strangers, and a few strange blogger friends with a prompt, to respond to in six words.
July is Freedom from Fear of Speaking Month.
In six words, tell something you’d like to say to the world. Think, I never liked my mom’s spaghetti or You should marry me, Pippa Middleton. Apparently, I needed an actual ring and an actual knee to bend to enter consideration. Who knew?
What about you?
No, I’m not proposing. What’s something you’d like to tell the world – in six words?
Note: I’m often asked how I choose participants for 6 words. It’s a simple process. I have a list of blogs to read; it’s long, and it’s based on blogs I’ve found through social media and comments here on this blog.
I try to get through several each day. That doesn’t always work out. Those that I visit, I will extend an invitation to, whether it’s my first time or 300th time on your blog. That is, if you have an email address on your blog.
Also, if you’re in my inbox, I’ll extend the invitation when we correspond. Thing is, the inbox looks like a garden that needs weeding right now. I’m so far behind, I can’t even extend a thank you for some of the six-w0rds contributions I’ve gotten!
I’ll catch up.
Also, you can always send me an email and ask me what the prompt is this month.
