It’s Six Sentence Story Thursday Link Up!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and another edition of Six Sentence Stories! Exciting isn’t it? Creativity/imagination. It may undulate with mood or circumstance or simply the phase of the moon. Regardless, it is a resource that, when utilized and channeled, can produce enormous self satisfaction. And the icing? When shared, is a source of entertainment, learning, escape, example. In short, sharing of ourselves creatively not only helps enhance our own skills as writers, it also benefits others as we read each others’ works, provide feedback and engage in conversation. Enough pressure these days to last a lifetime so if you want to let off a little creative steam, consider writing a Six Sentence Story. Or a 6 line poem. How about sharing a 6 sentence scene from the novel you’ve been working on? Whatever you decide, we’re here. Now through next Tuesday. Don’t worry that the words haven’t appeared yet. There’s time. The words will come.
They will most definitely come. Stay safe, be well. I’ll read you soon 🙂

Rules of the hop:
Write 6 Sentences. No more. No less.

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories! Time travel. Physicists persist in discovering that which will make it real. One day, it will be more than theory. One day, scientists will validate the theoretical time-dilation effect of Special Relativity and while that takes care of the future, what about the past? Pat over to “A season and a time” commented at my Six this past week saying, in part  – “The music brought back a memory of a beautiful experience from many years ago…” Music. Not everyone has the wonder of time travel through it however, music is magic. Now, more than ever in our collective lifetime, we look for those tools that have the power to facilitate a little magic, provide respite, make us smile and dance and sing. In the words of Ray Davies – “don’t forget to dance.” And write! Have a wonderful week everyone, be safe, and write when you can. I’ll read you soon 😀

PROMPT WORDNOISE

“The danger that keeps me just a little frightened with every book I write, however, is that I’ll overreach myself once too often and try to write a story that I’m just plain not talented or skillful enough to write. That’s the dilemma every storyteller faces. It is painful to fail. But it is far sadder when a storyteller stops wanting to try.”Orson Scott Card

People Get Ready. It’s a 6.

Like tiny little angel boots, the ranks of raindrops persisted; perfectly synchronized, they charged through the house gutters, their hollow echoes insistent – storm is coming

On the ground an infantry of daffodils defended the west hillside, silent stalwart sentries; to the east forsythia, sweeping arms of yellow, ornamental flower leafs waving – we are ready

A squadron of squirrels could be seen in the safety of the southern quadrant, supplies were plentiful, the littered landscape offering tiny pods of nourishment – restocking, they were prepared

Resonant rumblings overhead alerted the prolific winged creatures, they were the outliers, their duty – to observe and report

Walking in wonder amidst emerging color, life and activity – the umbrella was raised

Arrival imminent – Spring has breached the perimeter

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and another edition of Six Sentence Stories! Amidst current upheaval, change in schedules, working remotely, I find I’m still writing the SSS link post pretty much around the same time on a Wednesday that I typically do, lol.  A solid example of how routine dares us to alter it. Consider where we find, consciously or not, a feeling of safety, comfort. Longstanding routines, in their inevitable certainty, provide such comfort – until those routines are altered by circumstances beyond our control. Writing is in our control. Sharing is in our control. This week, as every week, I invite you to share 6 sentences of flash fiction, 6 lines of poetry, 6 lines from the latest manuscript and link them at the blog hop to end all blog hops… Six Sentence Stories. Challenge on!

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories! My apologies for posting a little later than the norm. Speaking of, a couple of us linked up a little “later” this week than we typically do however, none were late. How could we be?! The SSS link stays open Thursday through Tuesday. Keep that in mind if you find your schedule a little topsy-turvy this week. Link when you can. We’ll all be around. Take care of yourselves and good writing 🙂

PROMPT WORDSAFETY

“A novel is often a longer process in handling self-doubt”.
Robert Sheckley

Theories of relativity. It’s a 6

No one believed me, not even my best friend and so, inevitable I would stand alone to face….the monster. Like steam fog hovering over a lake on a late autumn morning, the memory of its first arrival is clouded and yet the sensation it had always been there nagged me; trying to befriend me, it was masterful at misdirection.

Anointed by adults around me as “mature for my age”, I could easily acknowledge my youth and inexperience allowed for a boa constrictor grip to hold me captive to my own body, my own mind, silencing me – until 5th period science class on the last day of classes before spring break.

A nestling, safely tucked away in the last desk, 2nd row closest to the door, I waited in anticipation to be fed, knowing sustenance would soon be mine and sure enough, Mrs. C blew through the classroom door, soft waves of raven black hair moving effortlessly about her shoulders, gesturing animatedly; greeting us in her native language, “boa tarde alunos!”, she was hailed an enigma by students and faculty alike – she was by far my favorite teacher. Ahead of the academic curve, continuously challenging students to think “above and beyond” she introduced us to quantum physics, a subject I was passionate about, (it was my dream to become a quantum physicist one day), except no one really knew that about me.

I was “the weird kid, always sits in the back”, never participating in class discussions, never asking a question, never answering questions – until today when Mrs. C asked if anyone knew who Sean Carroll was; without thought, I raised my hand, answering before being called on… it was the day I slayed a monster.

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and another edition of Six Sentence Stories! Sunday, when I selected the quote for today’s post, I had no way to know how fitting it would turn out to be (at least for those of us who spend a lot of time in there, in our heads, lol). Life is transforming before our eyes. Daily. Yes, there are disruptions in our “normal” routines, temporary as they may be. Yet, there are constants! Writing. It is, has been and always will be, forever, amen. So whadya say? Link up a Six? We keep the lights on until next Tuesday so no worries for being late. You can’t be late! Right, Lisa Listwa? 😀
Read you soon.
