Daily Prompt: Roy G. Biv.
Write about anything you’d like, but make sure that all seven colors of the rainbow — red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet — make an appearance in the post, either through word or image. Photographers, artists, poets: show us COLORS.

The old folks said I reminded them of Violet, my grandfather’s sister. I couldn’t see it. Violet was shapely and glamorous and I was a skinny girl with crooked teeth and scabs on her knees. Violet was self-confident. She was popular. She wore jodhpurs and went riding with a handsome beau.
No, I couldn’t see what the old folks saw. I couldn’t see my inner Violet.
But it gave me hope.

For many years I have suffered from debilitating bloglessness, only writing in my head, while everyone else posted and shared with ease. Previous attempts at recovery have failed, my secret journals edited to death, pages torn out, crumpled and trashed. I will not succumb to this embarassing condition. I will continue to struggle against the rampant backspacing and endless blank staring. I refuse to relapse into the void that is bloglessness. I can do it. I am doing it. I am Overcoming Bloglessness.
