Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and another edition of Six Sentence Stories!
I’m sitting at my desk at work, looking out my office window, the sky still showing blue, and a light west wind slowly pushing billowy clouds along. It is lunch hour and this post will be the last written from this location. Tomorrow we relocate. While I’m excited to move, I’m also a little sad for leaving. These last few years, my office mate and I have created storylines for so many people that have passed by our window including the regulars who park in the lot and work in nearby buildings. *sigh* No more “Well-Dressed Man” or “Mr. DC” or “Dogman”. We’ll never know when the “Silver Student” graduates GMU because we won’t be here to notice the day he doesn’t show up in “his” parking spot. Orson Scott Card’s quote about a thousand story ideas walking past us each day is clearly on the money. But you guys know this. So. On this Wednesday, the official opening of Six Sentence Stories, you are invited to share your story or poem or serial installment or soc in exactly 6 sentences. Please join us at the ‘Edge for another round of Six Sentence Stories. Let’s open some windows.
Rules of the hop:
Write 6 Sentences. No more. No less.
Use the current week’s prompt word.
