What time is it? What day? Still Time?? Yay!

Hey! Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. It’s all of a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, night, Sunday morning and well, I’m trying to figure out how in the world to begin this week’s 6 sentence story. I’ve finally found some words. You would think I’d have an advantage being the one to provide the cue word. Not true. I find myself in the same boat I often find myself in – the boat of no ideas adrift on a sea of words, no port calling my name *sigh*

I’m going to go out on a limb and say “I’m late”! Late to the blog hop I moderate, administrate and otherwise participate. Yet, here it is Sunday, posting my SSS, what? 3 days after the link opened (or is that 4? lol). But that’s the beauty of it! There are at least 5 days available each week to post your 6 Sentence Story. So without further ado….

The harder she tried, the more elusive the task.
The more she persisted, the greater her frustration.
Throwing her hands in the air, as if they were detachable limbs, she re-focused to the task at hand.
She sat, hands poised over the keyboard, smiled to herself.
While she and writer’s block had become great friends, she knew she had a responsibility so she took the first step and cued up a blank page.
Not all that familiar with the man’s writing, surely he was on point when he is quoted as saying “ultimately the bond of all companionship, whether in marriage or in friendship, is conversation” and so she began “hello, old friend, how have you been?”

    This is clever and cute, if one can say a post is cute. 🙂
    The detachable limbs in the air made me laugh as I visualized that scene.

      I realize now I forgot to give credit to Oscar Wilde for the quote!

    And I am even later in getting back here to read! April because a blur of writing/reading/a-z, but it does get me back into the daily habit and for that I am grateful. I love what you have done here, taking the feeling of not knowing what to write and transforming it into a vignette that most of us could relate to. I think you found the perfect ending, it made me smile. Ahh yes, the screen and keyboard are old friends, much like the days when people wrote “Dear Diary” on blank pages with pen and ink, and then began to share the intimate details of their day. Writing was never our enemy, but rather the problem is all the noise of the world that occupies our brain and deafens our ears to the quiet voice of our inner muse.

      “…but rather the problem is all the noise of the world that occupies our brain and deafens our ears to the quiet voice of our inner muse.

      Thank you Josie for articulating that thought so beautifully and succinctly. That is what it’s about! Trying to quiet my brain from the myriad of spinning top thoughts and worries dancing up and down inside my head lol
      I’m happy you enjoyed my post. My hope is always that readers will enjoy words I’ve shared. It’s very uplifting to open up the ‘top and see I’ve got comments even from posts long ago. You just made my Saturday morning a little more pleasant 😀
      I feel you pain about the blur of April! I fully intended to read a lot of the A-Z’s especially zoe’s and Dyanne’s but somehow I’ve got behind somewhere around “D” lol
      I miss pen and pad. That was the old standby for decades. While I don’t believe I would trade my laptop now for the pad, every now and then I will put pen to paper. Don’t ever want to leave and old friend behind.
      See you out there eventually!!! Promise 🙂

    A Six with no music, m’lady, is for us a pen without ink. Allow me…
