Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!” So says the Red Queen courtesy of Mr. C. Ask me why, lol, this should find it’s way into today’s post? Time. It’s uses. It’s filling with the “want/must do’s”. Eegads, my head spins. First things first! The prompt word! Six Sentence Stories. We are a community of writers who engage in that most aggravating, vexing, most rewarding of weekly activities – the Six Sentence Story Blog Hop. Armed with a new prompt word each Sunday, we are tasked with writing 6 and only 6 sentences of prose, poetry, drama, romance, non-fiction; then returning here beginning Wednesday evening EST, U.S., to link the URL to our stories. Walk through the door at the ‘Edge, and into the Six Sentence Café and Bistro…
Tell us a story.

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 😀


What I had to face, the very bitter lesson that everyone who wants to write has got to learn, was that a thing may in itself be the finest piece of writing one has ever done, and yet have absolutely no place in the manuscript one hopes to publish.” – Thomas Wolfe

    Thomas Wolf had it right. And so we save up pages and pages and many, many bytes that will probably never be used in another piece!
    Or maybe it’s like sourdough starter (currently just been fed & rising in a Mason jar on my counter), and it’s endpoint is something else entirely, but even more delightful?
    Eh, we can dream!

      We do save them! Perhaps not, but… I have, in the past, gone through old words and “cannibalized” them to see if they might act as seeds for something else, forge a new path through the forest.
      Or! Be like the sourdough on your counter rising into something more delightful.
      Of course we can dream! As we should 😊
