Core Belief

Don’t try to be deep. Being deep can turn into a pit real fast. Just tell what you see and hear. Be simple. Be exact. Thatโ€™s as deep as it needs to be.


This is my entry for this weekend’s Trifextra
Made with real cheese for a melt-in-your-mouth flavor you can’t resist.


About paulajwray

I am a writer and I live in the Rocky Mountains of southwest Colorado with my husband and a balding black cat. I write humor, flash fiction, creative non-fiction, inspirational essays, and poetry. When I'm not writing, making lists, or forcing a family member to listen to something I've written, I'm reading, gardening, or laughing with my friends. I also, occasionally, sit and stare.

    I like the play on words with the title, ‘Core Belief.’ ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you. This is the counsel I give myself when writing. Otherwise, I end up with words that are a poor fit for my ideas. So, yeah, it is the core.

      I know what you mean. Keeping it simple and exact (especially in the details) keeps me from going off the deep end. Pun intended! Thanks for your feedback.
