Mrs. Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus - Week 94 - My Autobiography in six words

Jenny Matlock

Welcome to Mrs. Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus, week ninety-four. SC is a writing challenge in which participants are required to write a text to a prompt using only a certain limited number of words. This week we are requested to write our autobiography using only six words. Mrs. Jenny Matlock's instructions will follow my text, which is this:

Loving most her children and craft.
------
Here's a new version: Loved both: Children and her craft. (But here it is not clear whether it is her own children or just children in general.) A third version could be: Loved both: Her children and craft. A fourth version could be: Loving most: Her children and craft. Or a fifth: Loving her children and craft most.

Word count: 6

Best wishes,
Anna




P.S.
That's it folks! I have always loved the visual arts and since my children have come to the world they are almost more important than my work as a visual artist.

Welcome to week ninety-four of Saturday Centus.

Before you go any further...
STOP!

I've had some e-mails from Centusians having trouble leaving comments of late. I'm wondering how you'd feel about offering an alternative method of getting in touch with you at the end of your blog post like your e-mail address. If you list it like this: jennymatlock at cox dot net it should protect you from 'bots.

If anyone has a better idea, please let me know!

I think we all enjoy the feedback of the comments and maybe something like this would work.

Now you can
GO!

Although you may not want to because I have a doozy of a challenge for you. I saw it in a magazine and thought it was ridiculously cool so it might be fun to give it a go here.

I know it's going to be almost impossible for those of you running continuous stories but I'm still going to do it to you.

Because I'm like that.

Here's your challenge for the week.

Write your autobiography.

In SIX WORDS!

I saw some examples and they were amazing. Here's two of them: "Learned too late to let go" and "Still dancing in the rain today!"

THEIR IS NO PROMPT THIS WEEK. BUT YOU HAVE 6 WORDS TO WRITE YOUR AUTOBIOGRAPHY. Period. FEEL FREE TO USE A PICTURE IF IT WILL HELP!

The regular restrictions apply: PG, no splitting of the prompt, play nicely and visit the other entries, any style or genre of writing you prefer.

Please display my link button or just a hyper-link back to Saturday Centus. Be careful to link your SC URL to the Linky and not just link to your main blog.

E-mail me directly with ???'s or ask your question in a comment and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.

Feel free to link up anytime between now and next Saturday!
