Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories! The sun has established itself this morning rather magnificently. Hopefully, the weather where you are is just as pleasant. Question: do you find you write better in gloomy weather conditions or sunny weather conditions? Are weather conditions immaterial to your writing? Do you notice a difference in style and composition when the weather is pleasant vs. not?  I suppose inspiration comes regardless of whatever is happening outside your window. The Six Sentence Story Blog Hop is a weekly writing challenge, rain or shine, that tests your ability to tell a story, write a poem, compose/share an excerpt from a wip, and present it in exactly 6 sentences. (Yes, it is fun!) Hope you’ll join in this week. Doors open early on Wednesday evening. The hop runs officially Thursday through the following Tuesday. Enjoy the rest of this day and 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 🙂


Writing is a struggle against silence.

    To answer your questions, the elements has no real effect on my writing, but when it’s not so pleasant outside I am more likely to write since I try to stay in when it’s damp out there. Fun word for this week! I am sure if I will go acrostic or not. Here’s a short one:

    Setting the gouda on the board, she grabs the sharpest knife in the block.
    Looking at the textures on the board, she is reminded of the many times her mother completed this same task.
    Instead of slicing the cheese, she decides to let it sit for a bit longer, gaining the advantage of dry air and room temperature.
    Cutting is such a skill that she hesitates once more, saying a prayer that she does her mother proud.
    Each sliver finds a way to her mouth, alone in her kitchen she takes certain liberties, perfect slices remain and are displayed perfectly on the plate.
    Decently sliced gouda is presented along with sliced baguettes from the bakery down the street, near the flowing stream, ever present all her life.

      Makes total sense. When I think about it, historically, I’ve been more inclined to write in less than pleasant weather but more for the atmosphere it “puts” me in. And of course, there’s the car. Can’t tell you, no matter the weather, when I’m driving, with no means of writing anything down, is when I get hit with a copious amount of words. What is up with that? LOL

      Excellent! This so reminds me of the parties my parents would host. Reliably, along with other goodies, would be the cheese and cracker plates. And always, there was Gouda cheese among the choices 😀

        I have those in the car moments right along with in the shower ones! I should carry my portable recorder. HAHA Aww thanks! I had to include Gouda for my Dutch man.

    Good weather means one should be outdoors, but I am solar powered so work best if it’s sunny out but if it’s sunny out I get distracted and don’t want to be in… it’s a wonder any writing gets done at all. But honestly, I like all kinds of weather and it’s all inspirational. But a really solid rain/wind storm is permission to stay jammified and read/ write more or less guilt free.

    I think all kinds of weather can be inspirational – or put a damper on the creative spirit. The short answer for me is that it really just depends.

    Good question. It’s usually mild here or baking hot which I don’t mind for writing. Last winter though was unusually bitter cold and I struggled to write comfortably hunched up at the table in jumpers and a scarf with cold fingers – and that was with the heating on. No probs this winter, it’s mild again 🙂

      First off, happy to hear you’re having a mild winter! I can totally relate to the cold hampering one’s writing – if you’ve a scarf and cold fingers, writing is not going to be all that fun. From an inspirational angle, I tend to be better in not so nice weather 🙂

        Yes, agree, the not so nice weather is good for writing I think – something comforting about getting down to work with a hot drink at hand while it’s nippy outside 🙂
