Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
It’s with a little bit of sadness that I write. I began feeling so several days ago when I observed the subtle change in the morning’s light, this morning ever more so, as I realize today represents the end of summer *sigh*. It’s true! The calendar in this part of the hemisphere may read “First Day of Summer”, but for myself and others, it’s the end. Days will now become shorter. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest, I appreciate your ear, which in this format, is reading. Which is what we do here at Six Sentence Stories when we’re not writing. Say what? What do we write for this blog hop/writing challenge? We write about whatever our imaginations might be putting up at the moment – poetry and serial scenes, flash fiction and fantasy, stream of consciousness or a bit of historical fiction… then we format it into precisely 6 sentences using the prompt word provided below, and return to GirlieOnTheEdge this coming Wednesday. Then what? Then we link the URL to our SSS and begin reading, chat with the authors, tell our friends about what we do and invite them over. We love meeting new people! Our world is small enough, eh? Let’s make it bigger 🙂

Rules of the hop:
Write 6 Sentences. No more. No less.
Use the current week’s prompt word.
Link up at Wednesday’s post. Link goes live at 6:00 pm through Saturday late…
Spread the word and put in a good one to your fellow writers 😀


A word has power in and of itself. It comes from nothing into sound and meaning; it gives origin to all things.” – N. Scott Momaday

    Love the quote, Denise! Happily for us at the other end of the world, the days are about to start getting longer 🙂

    I wrote a story but can’t find the link to join in. I guess when we step away, it’s hard to reunite.

      Hi Joyce! It’s been awhile since we’ve seen you at the Six 🙂 I’ll be publishing the post with the link sometime later this afternoon. The link always goes live at 6:00 PM Eastern Standard. Do come back and link up.
      The Sunday post is to give writers the prompt word to use in the Six Sentence Story and the Wednesday post contains the link.
      Hope to read you soon!
