This weekend’s challenge is quite appropriate for my feelings this week. Our challenge this week is to give a 33 word summary of how to exorcise our demons. My questions to myself when preparing to write this are: Which demon? Am I exorcising my self-loathing? Am I exorcising my lack of worthiness? Am I exorcising feeling like a shoddy wife? A bad mother? My fear of abandonment? My need to hurt myself to make the pain in my heart go away? My generally pessimistic attitude? How about exorcising the demon that tells me that for the seventh entry in a row my Trifecta/Trifextra piece has not placed and that, therefore, I am not as good a writer as I fancy myself to be?
Well, just as last week, this is a community judged piece. On Sunday evening, you can return to the challenge page and click the star next to the three pieces you like the best.
Close my eyes.
Visualize a black box.
Fortify the walls.
Put a lock on it that would shame Fort Knox.
Throw in fears, doubts, hatred.
Shut the lid.
Swallow the key.
