Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
There is another quote from Ms. Dillard I’m fond of that strikes a resounding chord. It’s a bit long to cite in this post however, it has been truncated by various sources to
How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” It immediately brought to mind Pink Floyd’s “Time“, and Dali’s iconic piece “The Persistence of Memory“. Writing, the act of writing, is suspension of time. It is a vehicle of transport across the dimensions of our imagination. The time to write is now. Remove your watch, do not look at the clock. Between now and Thursday, write exactly 6 sentences, write a Six Sentence Story.
What else have you to do between now and Thursday?

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 😀


Sometimes part of a book simply gets up and walks away. The writer cannot force it back into place. It wanders off to die.” – Annie Dillard

    Love the quote, Denise! That happened to me over the weekend: a whole chapter and two half chapters threw themselves off the cliff.
