Here's me in a nutshell.
Have you heard that story about Hemmingway? Someone challenged him to write a story only using six words. His reply was, "For Sale: baby shoes, never worn."
Rumor has it many called it his best work.
Recently on Etsy I read a helpful tutorial. The author challenged Etsy Sellers to do the same for their self/business. I was really turned on by this challenge. Thinking about it and working up to it has been tough. It's been almost two weeks since I took the challenge and I'm having difficulties figuring out what I want to say with six words.
What I am about to share with you is the list of ideas I have composed. I'm a bit embarassed about it. But I feel the need to share as a rite of passage. (so to speak) I read the list yesterday to my husband and some of them flat out made me laugh while reading them. He laughed at some too, and tried to make me nix a few immediately. Here is the list though, unedited. I don't mind if you laugh too. (or roll your eyes at me)
