Experience - Expand - Express
KNOW, GROW and FLOW through life
The fewer the words, the stronger the impression.
"An honest tale speeds best being plainly told." - William Shakespeare (King Richard III)
Headlines sum up experiences in just a few words. We can write headlines to define any experience. A good headline is typically less than 7 words. If you're in the mood, have fun with this by playing with alliteration, humour, verse, metaphors, parody, double reverse, rhyming, puns and duality.
If you like this process, start a page for daily headlines and you will eventually have a concise overview of the highlights in your life - your own newspaper!
Here are a few examples of how you might headline a day:
Job interview sparks old fears
Reactions to Sam require more healing
Forgiveness needed and given
Got cross with the boss, but no job loss
"If you wish to know the mind of a man, listen to his words." - Chinese Proverb
