It’s Six Sentence Story Thursday Link Up!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge!! I’m sure there must be an emoji representing excited jumping up and down, dancing all around? What? Emojis are no longer cool?! Whatev. I bet I can find it in the Emojipedia (oh, yeah, it’s real). I’m all kinds of excited because today is opening day for the Six Sentence Story Blog Hop/Writing Challenge. Ya, it’s a challenge and pour moi, c’est le plus amusant I’ve had ever, learning the craft of writing. So what say we begin the festivities and listen, don’t be shy. Bring a friend along if you like. The more 6’s, the merrier 😀 Everyone know the rules? Excellent. Remember, no rush. Doors stay open for this event until next Tuesday evening around 6:00 PM US EST. Good writing people! I’ll read you soon 🙂

Rules of the hop:
Write 6 Sentences. No more. No less.
Use the current week’s prompt word.
Come back here on Thursday, link your post…
Spread the word and put in a good one to your fellow writers 🙂

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. It’s Sunday. It’s prompt word day. Reveal day for the upcoming Six Sentence Story writing challenge. I was reviewing  a listing of words I began when I took over this hop and it hit me – there are so many, many words to choose from. So many that Six Sentence Stories could go on into perpetuity! How cool is that? 😀 For now though, it’s my pleasure to bring you this challenge each week. I hope you’ll join in the fun. In the meantime, have a wonderful week, may it be all that you would have it be. Let the writing begin 🙂

PROMPT WORDPOINT

“Writing is a delicious agony.”
Gwendolyn Brooks

Thank you, Sir Isaac. It’s a 6.

Thursday and Six Sentence Story time! Typically, I don’t write an intro, just kinda get right to it as they say but at this moment, I feel as if a little explanation of my 6 might be helpful? Naa-ah. I laugh at the fact I’m even suggesting that. Writing is art. Art is open to interpretation and honestly, isn’t that part of the fun?

                                                                ***************************

Unprecedented push-back slammed hard, the metal of her resistance sustaining yet another round of damage, a figurative pock mark, another crease.

She’d taxed her body, pushed it’s physical limits, savored the feeling of the adrenaline, aphrodisiac to all which ailed her. Fuel + oxygen + spark = combustion, experienced on a level not seen in recent times. Feeling invigorated and strong, energetic and youthful, body memory flooded, nostalgic, (it was) a lover’s embrace.

It is (now) all out war, a contest of will vs routine, both physical and metaphysical, a challenge to the 3 laws of motion. And the question remains:  F = ma or F = mv?

PROMPT WORD: CONTEST

“A writer can do nothing for men more necessary, satisfying, than just simply to reveal to them the infinite possibilities of their own souls.” – Walt Whitman

On a Long and Dusty Highway. It’s a 6.

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. Not sure if this is a work in progress or not, but Trina and Dusty came around this past weekend and well, I decided to listen in a little, it’s been awhile since I’ve heard from them…

Rain covered the early morning like a thin gauze veil; while Mother Nature had stretched a grey and somber canvass, she generously allowed for a burst of daffodil yellow, a taste of cherry blossom pink here, a dollop of dogwood white there, it was, after all, Spring. All fluffed up with nowhere to go, the wind interjected, howling disapproval screaming, bring it on baby, bring it on, as I pulled the blankets closer until they covered my head.

After months of selling me on the idea, I agreed to co-author a book with Dusty who quickly and quite enthusiastically proclaimed the two of us as next generation Niven & Pournelle, new and improved Child & Preston, reinvented King & Straub, updated version of the Brothers freaking Grimm.

As I lay under cover of blanket and day, it hit me – I couldn’t pinpoint the moment at which our friendship crossed the street from acquaintance to friend, not that it mattered, it had already felt as if Dusty and I had been friends for ever, old souls he was fond of saying, nowadays, old souls destined to be the next writing sensation. Such pondering (self indulgence, a more apt description) was sufficient motivation to get my body out of bed, grab my laptop and the Mongoose, Coffee Coffee, here I come.

A quick ride down Leucadia Blvd, left onto Coast Highway 101, and in no time I’ll be sitting at my favorite table by my favorite window, 16oz Hammerhead Au-Lait in hand, waiting, waiting for thoughts to type words for famished fingers to devour.
