I've been Tagged by Alice to sum up my life in six words or less.

Yikes! The switch from non-stop school activities to summer sloth has melted our brains around here, but I'll try . . .

Embrace the Chaos, Treasure the Now.

That's nice and Zen. :)

Now to tag others that I love to read--

Terry Jo, brilliant researcher of all things western, and Marnee Jo, slaving away over a wonderful WIP with the rest of us.

What about the rest of you? Could you sum up your life in six words or less? Or if not your entire life, what about your life right now?


Alice Audrey said...

Oh, I like yours. As you said, very Zen.

Some days I would say "Someone, anyone, please shoot me now."

Then there are others where I feel

"Battered, bruised, scarred but not broken."

Right now it's more:

"Life is satisfying, future is shiny." Which feels a little like Confuscious, but oh well. At least it's cheerful. :D

Thanks Alice!

Sarah, that's great! But sorry there's any need for the first ones. Although they do speak to a resilient spirit.

Marnee Jo said...

Thanks Gillian! That was very Zen. Mine, not so much. Check it out. :)

Gillian Layne said...

Sweetie, yours was a scream. Is motherhood not the most brain-melting occupation around? It's a wonder we can remember how to tie our shoes. :)

Hey Gillian! Can't find your email address atm. The Avon FanLit website is being taken down soon. Anything you want to save, best go do so. I have saved the round requirements off the mod screen if you want a copy of them.

Pass the word!!

I love that, Gillian. Something right off a fortune cookie.

Now Marnee has tagged me. Hmmm...I can sum my life up in two words - controlled chaos - but I'll have to think harder to come up with six.

Skirbo - I can totally relate to that 'shoot me' one.

Gillian Layne said...

Thanks for the heads up, Sarah.

Hi, Terrio. You can do it! :) I like controlled chaos.

I like yours, Gillian, and it is very you! Those of you with children, I salute you! My Mom says insanity is hereditary. You get if from your kids!

Mine would be "Dream audaciously. Strive constantly. Believe religiously."

Gillian Layne said...

Pam, that's so awesome, and sounds just like you--and it obviously works!!! ;)

Renee said...

Oh I love yours. I think it would make one of those excellent quotes.

Gillian Layne said...

Why, thank you Renee! I'm really glad you stopped by. :)

I've tried this on Terri's blog and found that I needed, at the base, about seven words. But that's under-shooting it quite a bit. The words were: Daughter, Sister, Aunt, Niece, Friend, Writer, and Student!

Kelly, your life sounds nice and full! Plenty of experiences to draw from when writing. :)
