Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise. If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments.
As a child, she loved to spin.
Arms wide, head thrown back
Feet turning in one direction
As the surrounding scenery blurred
She did her best to remain upright
As a teen, she chose to spin
Going on amusement rides that spun her around
Dating guys who left her dizzy
A mix of confidence and uncertainty
Tried her best to remain upright
As an adult, she’d rather not spin
But life has other plans
Tossing challenges her way
Till she feels loss of control
Still, she does her best to remain upright
