Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
There is another quote from Ms. Dillard I’m fond of that strikes a resounding chord. It’s a bit long to cite in this post however, it has been truncated by various sources to
How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” It immediately brought to mind Pink Floyd’s “Time“, and Dali’s iconic piece “The Persistence of Memory“. Writing, the act of writing, is suspension of time. It is a vehicle of transport across the dimensions of our imagination. The time to write is now. Remove your watch, do not look at the clock. Between now and Thursday, write exactly 6 sentences, write a Six Sentence Story.
What else have you to do between now and Thursday?

Rules of the hop:
Write 6 Sentences. No more. No less.
Use the current week’s prompt word.
Return here, link your post Wednesday night through Saturday late…
Spread the word and put in a good one to your fellow writers 😀

Sometimes part of a book simply gets up and walks away. The writer cannot force it back into place. It wanders off to die.” – Annie Dillard

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
Why do we do the things we do? Why? Now, let’s ask that question of our characters. What is their motivation? What compels them? Do their actions fully define who they are? Will their actions have an effect on others? And what about our poetry? I believe there are way many more poets who have yet to write a Six Sentence Story poem. Back in the day, writing on pads, I abhorred the idea of letting anyone read my words of poetry. What if they laughed! Thought my words sucked?! Fear. It’s insidious. Let’s not feed the monster. Each week, I extend an invitation to contribute precisely 6 sentences of fiction, fantasy, poetry… our creative selves, to this growing community of writers. If we do not write, we cannot improve. If we are already good, then why not share? Let us not waste another day. Write some words. Put them in 6 sentences and let’s see whatcha got.

Even when passages seemed to come easily, as though I were copying from a folio held open by smiling angels, the manuscript revealed the usual signs of struggle—bloodstains, teethmarks, gashes, and burns.” – Annie Dillard

Do not hoard what seems good for a later place in the book, or for another book; give it, give it all, give it now.” —Annie Dillard
