It’s Six Sentence Story Thursday Link Up!

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.

Link is live Wednesday 6:00 PM, ends way late Saturday night!
Spread the word and put in a good one to your fellow writers  😀

    May your relocation be uneventful and smooth.
    May you also discover new “windows” overlooking passing by stories.

    Oh my goodness! Your post is so sad! I hate moving but change can often be good; I hope that’s the case for you and all goes well. Whatever you’re leaving behind will always be in your memory bank. Great new adventures await! Good luck!!

    I just linked my BOOKMARK story. 🌟 🐘

      Moving is never not an ordeal, right?! Agreed. It can.
      Thank you, Nancy. There are some good memories for sure.
      Bring on the new adventures!
      Thanks again!

      Excellent! Just tweeted it out. Will be making my way round

    Hope the move is happy and with sweet views, D!

    Imagine though, two co-workers inspired by their everyday window scenes, having to move to a forty-something floor of a new business apartment, only to see their new window view is of… another office block – with two co-workers staring back at them looking for inspiration 🤪

    Your editorial also reminded me of the ‘Dawn of the Dead – Burt Reynolds’ scene, when they’re on a rooftop shooting lookalike zombies 😁

      Thank you, V! A huge unknown as we’ve only seen the floor plan.

      You’re not far off, lol. 4th floor. Luckily for us your imagined view will not be ours although…my office mate has already commented that, if we are correct on the placement of our window, our view will be of a Best Western hotel. Yeah… I know 🤣

      Not sure I saw the movie (don’t yell at me!) Thanks for the visual 😁
