six

The following is inspired by children's author/illustrator Grace Lin. She posted her six on 2/23/11. I've been thinking about it ever since. According to Ms. Lin, Virginia Woolf gave a speech about Falkner's six (the six things writers should write about).

"Falkner said in 1949 in the Nobel speech that if we are not writing about these six things then we are not doing our job. They are love, honor, pity, pride, compassion, and sacrifice."

As one of my new year's resolutions, I've listed the six things that are important for me to write about.

On 2/27/11 they were:

LOVE
LOYALTY
KINDNESS
COMMUNITY
UNDERSTANDING
FREEDOM

Today my six are:

LOVE
COURAGE
AWARENESS
ACCEPTANCE
EMPATHY
RELEASE

Do you have your own six?
