250 word Flash Fiction.

I never found a magic marker. If I did, though, I would certainly never have drawn on my self. I would never have taken that ink and put, for example a G Clef on my leg, as I never sat around my house, never half naked, never bored. Never feeling self destructively artistic.  I would never have drawn a ring around my never married finger, with that never discovered marking device, nor would I never have drawn some weird sort of dragon upon my never tattooed forearm, never bringing to life some sort of half-permanent moment of once forgotten, yet never remembered times, of never buildings, of never times, of never shrines, of never temples, of never imagined moments, never written out, with ink that never existed.


I could never write about such things, that never happened.

Never have I tried to tell a story that I wanted someone to never completely relate to; never understanding or becoming never inspired by.

I would never think such a thing is possible.

I would never write anything that is wrong. I could never write anything is right.

I guess, I never should have tried.

 I will never give up, though.

I never had a chance, but I never gave myself the moment, so I never knew the difference.


I never found a magic marker, never drawing away.

Never, have I found a more better place than to be here and, now; 

as, I never explain things very well.

I never wrote this.

It can be fun to go doodling on arms and things so long as the ink washes off. All this never never....Brilliant final sentence!

Haha, yeah , I have a bad habit of drawing on myself, with ink that washes off, of course !
I kinda' thought I took all these "never wrote" pieces a bit too far, but there is something freeing about them.
So, I'll tell you, every time I write something, I, 100% of time, feel like it is "never good enough", I guess I expect too much of myself. Its not about confidence, because as you can see I post it anyways, not giving a flying a fruit newton, but more about, "was that my best" ?
Try and try again, feeling I never try hard enough. We are our own worst enemy, as they say; damn them ! lol
But, who am I judge myself, when there are so many willing people to do so haha.
Okay, I am rambling now, I think.
Thanks for understanding, that these pieces are just a way to creatively write out my emotions and express pent up, unresolved, and/or discovered answers, about myself, thinking someone else might relate.

I never wrote this. This is an interesting concept that I've written about once, the writing developments that never quite make it out into the world. It's brilliance in our heads by reality makes it sag, it is HARD writing because it never does seem just quite right most times- but that is what editing is for! :D

Never felt completely satisfied & perfect about anything I had written either... But I like this piece, it sort of talks to me!

This was so relatable Dr. Acula !

I even have the habit of writing on my hands with red pen at work to remind me of important things...and I work in corporate...

I criticise everything I write and I most of the time hate everything I put to wife and sister keep me in check, otherwise I wouldn't post anything ...ever !

Well done !
