Writing Challenge Day 6 – Steal

So day 6 is Steal. Funny enough when I was reading the post itself a paragraph stuck out to me and I was already thinking of posting it somewhere. So when I saw that the challenge was to “steal” something I thought, sure enough, I’ll just steal this.

So I’ve taken two things that inspired this:

“Sometimes, we don’t even realize we do this, but we all do it. Great artists borrow from other artists. They meld together pieces of the chaotic mess we all call life, and they end up with a whole new creation.” –Jeff Goins

till we have faces

Those two things above (quote and photos) together for me inspired this below…

“Swirling around her as she spun she saw the bits and pieces of her life flying by like sparkles floating in water.

Her mother, her father, brother, sister. Strands of her life.

Her loves, losses, laughter, cries echoing, making a song.

Her decisions to act, the times she didn’t but should have, the times she cared and the times she cared less.

Her failures, her achievements. Her dreams.

It all together swirled up and made this object in the middle.

It made up her.”
