Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
To borrow from the Outer Limits, kinda sorta, “There is nothing wrong with your phones, laptops, tablets. Do not attempt to adjust the settings. I am controlling these words, at this hour...” which is a bit on the early side. Pourquoi? Once fully caffeinated, I’ll be hitting the road in my Pursuit Special heading to the Northern Lands. So trying not to look at the clock as once I realize I’ve got 400+miles to drive, I get all in a hurry to get the job done. Speaking of – Six Sentence Stories. Our community, this relationship we’ve built – not sure you know how much I enjoy the creative energy you share each week (someone tell ceayr, he plays hookie one more week, we send out the posse, lol).  So. Take this week’s prompt word and do your magic by writing exactly, precisely, 6 sentences. Wow us with a story or a poem, tease us with the next episode in your serial or spew that soc (wait, what?! “spew”? really?). The road beckons. Write. Read. Share. Let’s do this thing, eh?  

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 😀


A writer of fiction lives in fear. Each new day demands new ideas, and he can never be sure whether he is going to come up with them or not.” – Roald Dahl

    We find our heroine, a woman of determination and dedication as well as many talents, somewhere in a mean streeted megalopolis, who, having taken care of her weekly duties and obligations, removes her work hats and assumes another role, that of Road Warrior.
    Deftly handling her muscle car with finesse, she navigates expressways that are neat as a Celtic Knot. Because of this dizzying design she begins to feel as if she is going in circles, her northerly destination evading her at every turn. There, that tall thin man, talking with a bearded fellow outside that bistro, hasn’t she already passed them, like six times already? And why, she wonders, is her GPS speaking to her with a Scottish burr, she does not recall programming that, and what does that even mean, “Take six lefts and you’ll be right”?
    A cop pulls her over and informs her that this is her sixth offense and she will be sentenced to six years of community service, and she smiles then, for she knows she has a great community who are always grateful for time served promptly.

      Aww, D. What a cool story-ette. I have heard from reliable sources, she does deftly handle her vehicle with finesse…
      She knows alright, just how lucky she is for the company she keeps.
      Take six lefts, you say? 😀

      What, knot again? Yes, we did knot too long ago, but why knot see what else unravels this time. That is, I’m okay with it.

      Page 12 of my word doc of prompt words did not have a “USED” date beside it however, I have to admit it sounded familiar.
      But it’s ok, Doug. Allows us a second chance to use it. Even prompt words, I suppose, deserve a second chance 😉
