PROMPT WORD: ATMOSPHERE

“Writing became such a process of discovery that I couldn’t wait to get to work in the morning: I wanted to know what I was going to say.
~Sharon O’Brien” 

Our secrets are safe. It’s a 6.

Fingers, as gnarled as her favorite piece of driftwood rested uncertainly upon the touchscreen.

Surely he told me the security code, my fingers will remember the sequence, they must remember the sequence.

Eyebrows furrowed to compliment her growing frown; she let out a sigh of exasperation, whispering “why?”

Why, dear departed husband would you safe keep the passwords to all of our accounts in a receptacle so difficult to access instead of in a simple box under good old fashioned lock and key? At least then, I could call a locksmith.

Frustrated she could not recall the number sequence to open the safe; poised to concede defeat, she slowly closed her eyes, willed her mind to silence and once again placed her fingers upon the numbered key pad until she felt movement … 1 4 1 5 4 1

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and the event known as Six Sentence Stories! “Event?” you ask? Check it out for your own self! The 411 in a nutshell:  Sundays, I publish a post providing everyone the prompt word to use in a 6 sentence story, poem or snippet from a wip. Wednesday evening, in deference to our friends living in the future, I publish the post containing the Inlinkz link-a-ma-jig, the magical doorway leading to a single page where everyone’s story (everyone’s thumbnail link to their story, to be factual) appears. Easy peasy 😀 Link your Six, then click on everyone else’s Six and enjoy the ride! If you’re an early bird like Mimi, Susan and Pratihba were last week, don’t forget to come back later in the day/week to check out additional Sixes. It’s fabulously fun, fashionably forward and an all around enjoyable write. Hope you’ll join us with your Six Sentence Story. Read you soon!

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to Six Sentence Stories! Title says it all, right? Thursday’s Six Sentence Story writing challenge is about storytelling in no more and no less than 6 sentences. What’s so cool about this blog hop is seeing how many, and conversely, how few words can be used to tell that story! Each Sunday, I present the prompt word to use. Whether story or poem or an excerpt from your latest writing project, the entries are always entertaining and eclectic. Join us this week? We’d love to read you. You can link up anytime from Wednesday night through the following Tuesday. Floating deadline. And who doesn’t like that, lol. May your week be inspirational. Read you soon 🙂

PROMPT WORD:  CODE

“A writer must teach himself that the basest of all things is to be afraid. ” 
― William Faulkner

 

Pulling up Anchor. It’s a 6.

She stood astern on the paint peeled wooden vessel, casually, peacefully, leaning over the railing intoxicated by the elixir of ocean water, salt and the crispness of fall. Curling hair blown back from her face revealed eyes unsure of exactly where she stood. Puzzled, the familiar seemed distant, difficult to reach, as if consumed by early morning ground fog; daily life presented more of a challenge than she thought possible. Undecided if it was the October wind or the iced blue glare of his eyes, the approach of the ferryman sent a shiver up her spine.

“I’ve come to collect – you were told the price of the fare, yes?”  

The woman, fear simmering in a pot long forgotten, softly stuttered her reply –
“yes, it was explained to me quite some time ago”.
