Trifextra: Gone Fishin'

This post is in response to Trifecta's Trifextra writing challenge. 
Here was the prompt for this weekend: 

"For this weekend's challenge, in honor of all of the writers throwing rationality (and perhaps sanity) to the wind and writing til their 
 fingers bleed, we're asking for exactly 33 words about why we write."

Gone Fishin'

Moments fade faster than fingers can capture them.
A slice of inspiration stolen to the recesses of my mind.
The keyboard, a fishing net, thrown over memories to pull them to the surface.

  1. ooooo I like the idea of a net dragging things up from your mind--like trawling for treasure (:

  2. "Moments fade faster than fingers can capture them..." really conveys an almost breathless urgency which is often how I feel. In those moments, I'm happy to be able to get even the most jumbled words in my computer. This perfectly captures these feelings.

  8. This is very good! You captured the exact reason why most of us blog in such a general but personal way! We use 100’s of words (which again is one of the reasons why a lot of blog!) to say what you said in so few! Thank you!

  9. This is beautiful. It so eloquently captures how quickly our memories fade with the million things we experience each day. I wish I had a literal net to capture everything in.
