Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
It is a rare, if not singular event when, after I’ve chosen the week’s prompt word, it runs up behind me, taps me on the shoulder and says “yeah, you can thank me later“. Whether the emotional residue of that moment makes it into this week’s story remains to be seen. My point: words are power. They are powerful. You’re writers. Interpret as you wish. Today, I humbly offer you the prompt word below for the discovery of a place or person, emotion or event. Weave it, paint it, sculpt it into 6 and precisely 6 sentences. This is Six Sentence Stories. All who gather ’round this table each week know of the magic available. Go. Write. Engage the world. Return and show us where you’ve been.
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 😀
PROMPT WORD: FOUNTAIN
“You can’t write a novel all at once, any more than you can swallow a whale in one gulp. You do have to break it up into smaller chunks. But those smaller chunks aren’t good old familiar short stories. Novels aren’t built out of short stories. They are built out of scenes.”
– Orson Scott Card
