EDITOR’S NOTE: See what I’m talking about? 🤣 Hang on. Will be back with a word. Unless! One of you astute writers have a word you’d like us to use this week? Quick. Leave a comment and first person makes a suggestion before I re-post with prompt word, we’ll use your word!!
EDITOR’S NOTE: Spira be the man of the hour! May I present this week’s prompt word!
Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
You know the phrase “burning the candle at both ends”? Not sure what qualifies it as a valid circumstance, but at least for this morning… I’m claiming it! Groggily deciding to multi-task, I put chicken breasts for this week’s salads in the pan to cook, gave Mr. Coffee a big ole drink of water, and popped in the filter. Then I went back upstairs. Deciding sufficient time had elapsed, I proceed to go downstairs; halfway down it hit me – odd I only smelled garlic and chicken. There was no hint of coffee aroma. Never made the connection, lol. I’m sure you’ve realized what I did, or rather, didn’t do. And so I began again and put coffee grounds in the basket. Huh. Begin again. How many times in our writing do we do the same thing? Not necessarily forgetting an important component, but scribbling along and realize, “hey, this is not what I wanted to write!” We may or may not begin again. Or, we follow the thread, the unexplored trail. Is it not incumbent upon us, as writers, to explore the unknown? Six Sentence Stories. It’s a blog hop, a writing challenge, a venue where writers gather each week sharing their explorations.
6 sentences at a time. Feel me here, people? We’re writers. It’s what we do.
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 😀
