Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Hello and welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. Today being Sunday and all, it’s time once again to post the cue word, otherwise known as the prompt word. I was tempted to post another “C” word but ya know, I think not. I realized I should explore the alphabet a little more, there is after all, 26 letters in the English alphabet.

So there are few requirements to participate. Easy as 1, 2, 3 and 4.
6 Sentences. No more. No less.
Genre of your choosing.
Use this week’s cue/prompt word.
Come back here on Thursday and link up!!

Let me see if I can put it in words that even the inebriated might understand.

“How do you take your coffee?” It’s a TToT.

Hello all. Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. I’d invite you to join me for a morning breakfast beverage but well, you know, have to be served up virtual like. OK? Well, alright! Let’s coordinate the Mr. C’s, the Keurig warriors and lest anyone think I don’t remember that some of you are tea drinkers, let’s put on the kettle. (yes, I know you can prepare tea in a Keurig but let’s stick to tradition, eh?)

The more things change, the more they stay the same or as Jean-Baptiste originally said “plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose”— Got to give credit where credit is due. Hey! coolio segue! Thank you Josie for coordinating, facilitating, administering this blog hop, Ten Things of Thankful. If you guys have been over to Clark’s house already then you have the backstory, the origin of the TToT. Kindred spirits all.

I am thankful everyday and yet, I find that reminders are necessary to keep perspective fresh and current. It also has become apparent to me that reminders are needed for a slew of “things” but this morning, let’s touch on some highlights of recent days.

1  Always a thankful, the hospitality of my sister-in-law and brother. I am home with them.

2  My 1st TToT could not be without the pre-requisite safe travels on the roadways. A hearty TY for that!

3  The auditory sounds of brewing coffee. Not the burping whir of a Keurig machine but the aromatic sputtering from a good old fashioned Mr. Coffee (or other like machine!)  🙂

4  This very exact moment!!!! The sun (no, it did not go all super nova last week. yeah, yeah, I know, the sun doesn’t have enough mass to go super nova. dontcha love the internet!!!). It attempts to break free of the cumulus nimbo stradivarius whatever chains and it’s…it’s almost shining through 😀

5  The beautiful weather today. Not quite. And yet, it is. It’s the attitude, right? Sure, I wanted to wake up to a gorgeous, spring like day with blazing sun but I didn’t. But! I did wake up and that’s a good enough start to the day for me.

6.   the Wakefield Doctrine. Of course! Who doesn’t enjoy removing the guesswork 🙂

7  My health. In particular my brain, that by all accounts, is functioning normally.

8  A renewed sense of self, short term purpose. Roadtrips are good for that. (Wait! does this count as 8 & 9?) Righty, right it does. The SBOR/BOSR 1.3, can’t remember chapter (ask Clark or zoe), says this is permissible. Which brings me to number…

10  Today, this day. The potential of it. The awareness that it is mine to celebrate. Whatsay, celebrate today regardless of sun or clouds or rain? See you out there people.

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and the Sunday word prompt. Below is the cue word for this coming Thursday’s Six Sentence Story blog hop. Part of the fun for me each week is looking for quotes by well known writers, some of whom I’ve heard of, some not, but whose words resonate on some level. This week, I’ve switched it up a bit! The quote is from this author’s last work and was published in 1949. Can you identify the author? The book?

Speaking of rules, all we ask is you:
Write a story, a poem, whatever, all genres welcome.
Write 6 sentences, no more, no less.
Use this week’s cue word.
Meet back here Thursday, link up and have fun!


                               “It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.”

Casting call. It’s a 6 Sentence Story.

In those immortal 4 words….”hey ho, let’s go!”  Not taking no for an answer. I enjoy writing (mostly) and I’m not going another week without joining in the fun. I know you all can relate to sitting in front of a blank screen until you realize, the longer you sit there, the screen is simply reflecting what’s in your head. Scare-ree. I’ve gone the last 2 weeks without posting a SSS and I’m simply not going to let it go to 3, so here go’s nothing. (hey. that would have been a cool joke, huh? nothing, empty space for the 6. yeah, yeah, so that’s a little weird. blame it on the heat! that’s right. 92 degrees today. yowza.)

She screamed, in a tone we all knew intimately, not frantic, not angry but….sprinkled, you might say, with a dash of desperation…

“Can I please get a volunteer!!! All I need is a single volunteer to stand in for a short story. What do you say??!”

No one moved, statues all, no one responded, absolutely no one presented themselves forefront and center to offer their services and absolutely everyone, for some odd reason, was staring at me, Lyndon Landever, 8 year old from Cornwall, Connecticut, who pretty much keeps to himself and who for sure hasn’t had much experience out there, in fact, I haven’t had any.

So why they thought me so special I can’t tell you, well, except maybe… maybe it’s because about 2 weeks ago, after school, I discovered a portal to another dimension on the east end of West Cornwall Covered Bridge, but in my mind, that doesn’t make me any more qualified than any of the other guys, to be her volunteer today…. so it’s kinda looking like she’s out of luck again!
