Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
You may have heard of another blog hop, Ten Things of Thankful which, btw, is hosted by sometime Sixer, Dyanne Dillon. If I were to write a TToT, I would cite the Six Sentence Story blog hop. Each and every week. But let us return to the ‘Edge and this week’s prompt word offering. This word should be used in a writing of your choice. Poetry, memoir-ette (fiction or otherwise), musing, soc, or scene from a serial. You get my drift. We are here to challenge ourselves to create worlds and moods and moments, all within the parameters of 6 sentences. Think you can do this? If you have any doubt, remember our friends, “punctuation marks” 😀. They’re most helpful, let me tell you. Return here later this week and find out for yourself! Better yet, return here later this week and show us! Enjoy the day. Enjoy your week. Write. 

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 😀


We turn to stories and pictures and music because they show us who and what and why we are, and what our relationship is to life and death, what is essential, and what, despite the arbitrariness of falling beams, will not burn.” – Madeleine L’Engle, A Circle of Quiet

    Contemplating dropping a nuclear warhead on the diner…this is hard work coming UP with only six sentences each week and keeping people interested.

    I feel like I’m dragging this out longer than Niles pining for Daphne!!

    Please tell me you got the cultural reference.

    I feel old enough already! LOL

    Armour with a U…classy

      LOL I know exactly how you’re feeling! It is a challenge. Try not to psyche yourself out (that’s what I keep telling myself :D) The diner has become a real place. Remember how cool a thing that is.

      No, not to that point yet, Paul 😉 (oh, yes. I got it!)


      You got this. Breathe deeply, close your eyes, fingertips on the keyboard

      I’d have put a ‘U’ in it anyway 😉 – plus, Paul, I’m with Denise on the diner!

    You’re being French again, D 😎

    Armour: Etymology (Wikipedia)

    The word “armour” began to appear in the Middle Ages as a derivative of Old French. It is dated from 1297 as a “mail, defensive covering worn in combat”. The word originates from the Old French armure, itself derived from the Latin armatura meaning “arms and/or equipment”, with the root armare meaning “arms or gear”.

    I like how if the ‘r’ is dropped it becomes ‘amour’.
