I AM

One Short Sentence

Melody Adams

 

 

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
—  Confucius

 

To rephrase this wonderful saying…the journey of a thousand pages, or a thousand stories, or a thousand poems begins with a single word. 

 

It doesn’t matter if our writing begins, “Once upon a time,” or “It was a dark and stormy night.”  I read somewhere that I am is the shortest sentence in the English language.  But what a powerful sentence it is.  Try it on for size and see if you feel the power I’m talking about.

 

I am a writer.

 

I am an artist.

 

I am…

 

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, word, stroke of color.

 

I AM.
