Not So Obvious

In experimenting with various styles of writing and reading more of other writers’ work, I’m learning my strengths and weaknesses. Though I’m unofficially announcing at this moment I’m working on a novel, short fiction and poetry are what I’m best at. I like for my words to pack a punch, so I attempt to create a long message in as few words as possible. I dabble in six word stories and I’m always up for a good haiku. Here’s my first attempt at five sentence fiction:

Not So Obvious

A blind person could see it! The way she smiled when she read his messages; her eyes lit up every time she touched something he touched. She felt every word he spoke. The way they met was kismet. If only his eyes lit up, too.

    Great experimentation! Powerfully effective and succinct. That is a strength my ramblings do not yet possess.

    Good luck on your novel, don’t doubt yourself just write. You can revise later 😉

      I have no doubts! Just some days I’m more motivated than others, though it never hurts to know your strengths and weaknesses. Thanks for reading and commenting!

    Poetry is a special talent that I wish I had but don’t so I have to rely on people like you. Keep up the good work.
