Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
The prompt word for this week’s upcoming hop, comes courtesy of Spira. When the call went out in the June 8, 2022 post, for prompt word suggestions, I was delighted to receive a response from several of our Sixarians. Thank you all. About this morning – I was up early for a Sunday. ‘Course the clock now shows 8:00 am. I’m wondering what the heck I’ve been doing for 2 hours. Wait…coffee? Did someone say “coffee”? Why yes, it is time to partake of the second dose, cup (does anyone drink coffee in the old style little coffee cups anymore??), giant mug of the go-go juice. I know there are many tea drinkers among us, and some who may not partake of any hot morning beverage. Difficult to imagine yet, I have on rare occasion, contemplated the “what if” scenario of my never having become a coffee person. Hold on a minute….is there a Six Sentence Story in that thought?, lol Orson Scott Card was right when he said we all walk past “a thousand story ideas everyday.” As we move forward into another week, we have opportunity to take one of those thousands of ideas and write a Six Sentence Story using the prompt word below. Please join us again, in writing 6 and only 6 sentences of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, science fiction, historical fiction or the next scene in your serial. If you’re new to this exceptional community of writers, I encourage you to try your hand at writing a Six Sentence Story. You’ll find it an extraordinary experience.

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 😀


The danger that keeps me just a little frightened with every book I write, however, is that I’ll overreach myself once too often and try to write a story that I’m just plain not talented or skillful enough to write. That’s the dilemma every storyteller faces. It is painful to fail. But it is far sadder when a storyteller stops wanting to try.– Orson Scott Card

    I fell in the pit I dug…lol…
    Here is another OSC quote:
    “Fiction, because it is not about somebody who actually lived in the real world, always has the possibility of being about oneself”

    I went from being a hardcore Diet Pepsi/Coke person to straight La Croix sparkling water–a healthy choice! Wonderful quote, Denise–and tough prompt word! 🙂 If you’re still compiling a list of prompts, here’s one: VERTIGO. Catch you later–have a blessed week! 🙂

      That’s a tough transition, S. But excellent switch!
      It’s on the list!
      On the flip side as the kids used to say 😆
      Thank you.

        The switch was a lot easier than I feared, seemed to happen effortlessly! You’re welcome 🙂
