Rules such as “Write what you know,” and “Show, don’t tell,” while doubtlessly grounded in good sense, can be ignored with impunity by any novelist nimble enough to get away with it. There is, in fact, only one rule in writing fiction: Whatever works, works.
― Tom Robbins

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories! Good afternoon, good evening! May this post find you primed and ready to tackle another round of Six Sentence Stories. To quote Kristi, host of the marvelous TToT blog hop, “I’m always amazed at the variety of stories that link up to the same prompt word.” This is one of the prominent reasons I enjoy hosting and participating in this writing challenge. It is incredibly fun! And! I’ve learned so much from everyone. Not only in terms of information but how to improve my own writing skills. Thank you all for being a part of my continuing education here at the ‘Edge 🙂 Enjoy the upcoming week and if you’ve a mind to, stop by and link up a Six Sentence Story!

PROMPT WORDRIGHT

Prose is architecture, not interior decoration.
― Ernest Hemingway 

Everywhere can be anywhere. It’s a 6.

Inspiration would be here, she was certain of it.. 

Suntanned feet, nails painted Go Crazy Red, soles already sanded like powder sugared dough boys, she approached the ramp entrance to the beach.

Stepping onto splintered and grayed, salt weathered wooden slats serving as walkway to beach and ocean beyond, her body at once transformed; like blackstrap molasses pouring from a ceramic pitcher, tension slowly seeped from her muscles disappearing into the small, intermittent piles of dune sand lining the beach esplanade.

Palm fronds, tickled by a light breeze subtly augmented the ebb tide waves lapping the deserted shoreline as a treasure trove of sea shells, polished sea glass and occasional odd driftwood washed ashore, eternal pirate’s booty for the taking.

Startled by a sudden loud noise behind her, she lost her footing and with it the illusion of escape. Removing the Oculus Rift S VR headset with 6DOF motion tracking, she set about the task at hand, turned back to her laptop and began to type… suntanned feet, nails painted Go Crazy Red…

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
Creativity, open mindedness, attention to detail, wonder, persistence and commitment. Some of what we’re about as writers, yes? So what do you think about closing the link each week on Saturday night instead of the following Tuesday? Each edition of the SSS would run with live link Wednesday night – Saturday night. Let me know before Wednesday when I set the open/close for the next Six? Cool. Now…let’s get to writing that 6 sentence story with the word in green below 😀 Have a most excellent week, all and I’ll read you soon!

PROMPT WORD ETERNAL

The pages are still blank, but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there, written in invisible ink and clamoring to become visible.” – Vladimir Nabokov

 

The other side. It’s a 6.

“Watch out!” the 2 syllables couldn’t have echoed louder than if they’d been screamed over the South Rim Overlook at the Grand Canyon. He knew he shouldn’t leave angry but sometimes his mother could be so overbearing; when his siblings took her side, it was the last straw, sending him over the edge.

Mom had raised them to be independent thinkers, embrace creativity, not let fear of the unknown deter them from their aspirations, their goals and besides, crossing busy roads wasn’t all that scary but she had warned him to wait, not be fooled by the early hour, as cars and traffic were just gearing up for the morning commute and “there’s always“, she said, “someone in more than a hurry than they should be“; her eyes cautioned me to be patient.

I couldn’t wait, the adrenaline had already hit me and I was feeling on top of the world, invincible, …I’d show her, I’d show her I wasn’t a kid any more.  And just like that he’d found himself running across the first 2 lanes; reaching the grass median, moving so quickly he barely felt the dew laden blades tickle his legs as he kept eyes straight ahead, 2 more lanes and he’d be home free.

Later, the stories ever larger, told of his almost misadventure, of beating the odds, of being transported by an invisible force, of 4 feet barely touching the concrete, with not one tire grazing his body…

 

It’s Six Sentence Story Thursday Link Up!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and another edition of Six Sentence Stories! So what do you say? Everyone cued for linking up a Six? Imo, we writers are a fortunate bunch. Amidst the ongoing (fill in the blank), we have a most enjoyable (most of the time, lol) outlet – and we can virtually share it with people across the globe. Pretty darned cool. Here at SSS, the hop rules are simple and you can link your story as late as next Tuesday. If you have a story, poem, scene from the next book or a little ditty and it’s written in precisely 6 sentences, then I hope you’ll share it and join us for this week’s Six Sentence Stories.
Read you soon!
