Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories! I’ll admit (hold your collective gasps of incredulity, lol) I’ve not read any works by Ernest Hemingway. Having said that, I quite like the quote attributed to him posted below. And I daresay, there have been times I’ve felt as if I’ve run out of charges. However! There is this weekly blog hop, Six Sentence Stories. A writing challenge of which I’m most appreciative, Six Sentence Stories allows us to (if necessary) be tricked into thinking, “it’s only 6 sentences”, I can do this!”. What happens after we accept this challenge is a most beneficial experience. We’ve written words that otherwise may not have been written which equates to characters not given life, adventures not lived, mysteries not solved, joys not shared. So what do you think? Up for the challenge? We’d love to read you. Have a wonderful week all. Write and then write some more 😀

Rules of the hop:
Write 6 Sentences. No more. No less.
Use the current week’s prompt word.
Return here, link your post Wednesday night through Saturday late…
Spread the word and put in a good one to your fellow writers 🙂


There is no rule on how to write. Sometimes it comes easily and perfectly; sometimes it’s like drilling rock and then blasting it out with charges.” – Ernest Hemingway

    I’m drilling and blasting the rock of my wip novel just now. The phrase is totally appropriate since this is what’s actually been happening in the story! The consequences are about to be dire…

    Oh, but you should read Hemingway, Denise. One of my favourite authors.

      Sorry to hear that Chris. What coincidence! That must be hugely frustrating – knowing but not, words playing hide and seek. I can identify with that, lol.

      Title suggestion for me as a first time reader?

        If you just want to dip your toe in the water, I’d suggest the novella, ‘The Old Man and the Sea’. His classic (for me) is ‘For Whom the Bell Tolls’ set in the Spanish Civil War. My personal favourite is ‘Islands in the Stream’, which draws heavily on Hemingway’s own experience and was published after his death.

          Thanks, Chris. I’m familiar with all of those titles. I’ll begin with “The Old Man and the Sea” at your suggestion 🙂
