Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
This week’s prompt word came to mind in a half sleep. Far be it for me to question thoughts emanating from my semi-conscious brain, right? At least when it comes to
Six Sentence Stories, lol. Which raises the question: if a word can come to mind during the in-between time of waking and slumber, during those minutes or moments before we step off the ledge into total unconsciousness (known as hypnopompia, not to be confused with hypnagogia), then surely there are stories lying in wait there as well. Wherever you find your ideas and storylines or wherever you meet your characters, consider sharing them here at the weekly writing challenge that is Six Sentence Stories. The only requirement is to present your story, poem, or next scene in your serial story or book, in exactly 6 sentences. Link it at this Wednesday’s evening post and let the reading begin. We hope you’ll join us.

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 😀


One thing that helps is to give myself permission to write badly. I tell myself that I’m going to do my five or 10 pages no matter what, and that I can always tear them up the following morning if I want. I’ll have lost nothing—writing and tearing up five pages would leave me no further behind than if I took the day off.” – Lawrence Block

    Oooh, I love the L. Block quotation. Definitely frees up the Muse pen–and is a better use of writer’s time than writing nothing. “Service”, huh…oh brother, I’ll have to wind up my brain 🙂 🙂 See ya Thursday–take good care of YOU! ❤
