It’s Six Sentence Story Thursday Link Up!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Six Sentence Stories! Poetry, flash fiction, works in progress (wip), s’what it’s all about. The “catch” of course, is that whatever your contribution, it must be presented in 6 and only 6 sentences. Piece of gateau, non? Don’t know about you, but for me, one of the more enjoyable aspects of the Six Sentence Story Challenge is witnessing the manipulation of English grammar. Words overflowing from your screen? Well get out the “anti- Strunk and White” and go to town, lol Time’s a ticking….read you soon!

Rules of the hop:
Write 6 Sentences. No more. No less.
Use the current week’s prompt word.

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. Are you ready? If not, it’s time to fire up the machinery and tap out some wordage ‘cuz it’s… Six Sentence Story Time! How difficult can that be, right? I submit, not very. Except…. when it is! Say you have a concept, idea, teetering on the edge of your imagination. What do you do to push it over the edge? How do you entice your character to come out from hiding behind the over sized bookcase or heaven forbid from behind the easy chair? What stimulates your creativity? I’m all ears but at this exact moment, seems I’ve got some heavy furniture to move around 😀 Read you soon!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. Welcome to Six Sentence Stories. Welcome to our weekly challenge, a blog hop like no other. Yes, there are other writing challenges, other blog hops, enjoyable and full of excitement but none like Six Sentence Stories. What makes it different? Well, I guess you’ll have to stop back here on Thursday and find out for yourself! Better yet, why not write a Six Sentence story or poem and link it up as the rules below suggest. The SSS is an excellent venue for getting feedback on the book you’ve been writing or the serial you’ve been publishing on the FB, 6 sentences at a time.

PROMPT WORD:  PROCESS

“It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment? For the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on the hop.” 
― Vita Sackville-West

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and this week’s Six Sentence Stories. Question: do we really change as individuals?  I would posit, no. Not our core selves. For example, I enjoy eating cereal out of a box now just as much as in my youth and yes, for dinner from time to time 😀 What does change? Our talents. With practice. With practice, we play an instrument better, speak a language more fluently or.. write better. The writing challenge, Six Sentence Stories, is an effort in that regard. All that is required is a story or poem or “wip” written in exactly 6 sentences. The length of those sentences is entirely up to you! Proficient in grammar and punctuation? Show us! Read you soon 🙂
