6 Sentences

I found a blog called 6 Sentences the other day and made a submission to them tonight while I was at work. I didn't work too hard on the sentences. The submission was pretty silly. I'm supposed to hear back on it within 6 days. If it gets posted on the blog, I'll cut and paste it here. I'm going to start that 100 Words thing tomorrow at 100 I haven't been able to maintain an attention span for the last month or so, let's see if I can do this. Working extra and trying to keep from getting swallowed by debt is the priority right now.

100 Words

I stumbled across a blog last night called 100 Words. The idea is that writers write 100 words daily (no more, no less) for a month. Each complete month is a batch. If you complete a batch, they publish it on the blog. Looks like a lot of participants. I think I'll give it a go starting the first of March. Maybe I'll copy and paste the posts to this blog. Can you do that? This is all still magic to me.

In the distance
the colored lights of the ferris wheel
and the sound of others joy,

when my eyes are closed,
I think it's panic.

"Oww. Owww. Owww.You son of a bitch, you're hurting me. Are you crazy or something? It hurts. Oww. Owww. Owww"

My office at work is connected to the emergency room by a hallway but separated from it by a locked door. There is what sounds to be an elderly woman in there now in great pain. She's actually been in there for several hours.At first, hearing her scream was shocking, disturbing, unsettling. After awhile, it became routine and annoying. She's got this pattern of fear and pain followed by lashing out followed by self soothing. I try to do other things and not listen, but there is no escaping it. She's got a very high voice. The sound creates a mental picture of a Muppet being tortured.
