Six Sentence Story

Today's challenge is to focus on brevity by telling a story in only six sentences. While I'm not a fan of (or very good at) "micro-blogging," this was an interesting writing practice.

A Pretty Good Day

I woke up to the ever-present pain. The little bit of light that peeks through around the black-out curtains in my room strike my eyes, as though I'm staring directly into the sun. But, I try to make the most of the day, and be grateful for the many blessings that I do have. So, I spend some time writing on my blog, texting with a few of my chronic pain friends, and enjoying the quiet of being home alone. When my husband gets home, we spend time chatting with each other and cook dinner together. I'm up late because of my insomnia and pain, but I thank God for all that He's given me... especially for the day I just had with less-debilitating pain.

This post was written as part of the Health Activist Writer's Awareness Challenge (HAWMC).


  1. I can only read little bits of your blog because I share your pain...literally. I am in tears knowing you suffer like I do. Many days, I can't even read my Bible because it hurts my eyes to read. Do you ever have that problem?

  2. I'm so sorry that you're in so much pain, as well. It's very hard. I have difficulties reading most of the time. I need to get back to the Bible, but it can be hard to do sometimes. Hoping for pain relief for us both.
