I’m participating in The Sometimes Stellar Six Word Story six words story contest; the theme this week is “Sin” you can check it here: https://nicolaauckland.wordpress.com/2016/01/09/sometimes-stellar-storyteller-six-word-story-challenge-16/
I made two entries:
- Loving him was her only sin
- Bullets flying, greed is loaded gun
I’m going to share with you the words of the author Terry Tempest Williams on why does she write, I think we can all relate to her beautiful words.
I write to make peace with the things I cannot control. I write to create red in a world that often appears black and white. I write to discover. I write to uncover. I write to meet my ghosts. I write to begin a dialogue. I write to imagine things differently and in imagining things differently perhaps the world will change. I write to honor beauty. I write to correspond with my friends. I write as a daily act of improvisation. I write because it creates my composure. I write against power and for democracy. I write myself out of my nightmares and into my dreams. I write in a solitude born out of community. I write to the questions that shatter my sleep. I write to the answers that keep me complacent. I write to remember. I write to forget….
I write because I believe in words. I write because I do not believe in words. I write because it is a dance with paradox. I write because you can play on the page like a child left alone in sand. I write because it belongs to the force of the moon: high tide, low tide. I write because it is the way I take long walks. I write as a bow to wilderness. I write because I believe it can create a path in darkness….
I write as ritual. I write because I am not employable. I write out of my inconsistencies. I write because then I do not have to speak. I write with the colors of memory. I write as a witness to what I have seen. I write as a witness to what I imagine….
I write because it is dangerous, a bloody risk, like love, to form the words, to say the words, to touch the source, to be touched, to reveal how vulnerable we are, how transient we are. I write as though I am whispering in the ear of the one I love.

5 Facts about me:
I hate to be tied down with someone or something
I hate to be told what to do, it is my way or the highway. I love to be in control.
I tend to be argumentative; I really like having the last word in arguments sometimes this causes stress but mostly for me.
I had never voted before and I will never do it because I refuse to subscribe to the lame voting process. One day I will die happy knowing I didn’t elect some loser entity to dictate my life.
I’m protective of my family and friends and I’m willing to do anything for the ones who mean the most to me.
