The writing prompt was "Pendulum"

The One Minute Writer prompt today is "Pendulum". You can check out the blog if you like. Here's my one minute response to it. This was on my mind anyway, in some form or another. Maybe I'll have time to expand these thoughts later---

"Pendulum. Is that what you said? Right now it's about the writing. Yesterday I wanted to burn it all. What if I died tomorrow? Or in 6 months? Who would read all my old stories? Who is my audience? Do I want my husband to see this? Or my daughter in 5 years, 10, 20? I don't know. Burn it! Burn it! Or not."

  1. That's a cool idea, the one minute thing I mean. A reaction to what your wrote: You are the most important witness to your own life and therefore also to your own creations. Beyond that, creativity, as an act unto itself, seems incredibly valuable. I could get hyperbolic describing how valuable I think it is. Bravo for all your creations - even those you may or may not burn.
