Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
Life. At times causes us to insists we re-evaluate, re-assess, re-group…re-calibrate (“Calibration quantifies and controls errors or uncertainties within measurement processes to an acceptable level.”). Um yes. Getting right on it however, I first wish to extend my apologies to those writers I’ve not been round to read your Sixes. I’m on my way! What a sentiment, that. “on my way”. Where? When? How? Excellent questions we may ask ourselves when we sit to write. It’s a beginning. And so this week once again begins with an invitation to join us in another edition of Six Sentence Stories. New week, new word. Where will you take us? When will we be? Who will be there? It’s challenging. It’s fun. It’s writing a story, poem, new scene/chapter, memoir-ette and sharing it with the world. Six Sentences. That’s it. 6 and only 6 sentences is your challenge. Let’s do this.

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 😀

It’s a Six

Like 4000 volts of electricity running through a transformer, she felt her body come to life. Bringing the mug to her mouth again, she closed her eyes and drank more of the black gold. No, not “Texas tea” she chuckled to herself, this, no this was her favorite flavor go-go juice for time being, New England Donut Shop. She glanced up at the clock, actual real time (as opposed to the time in her head) sent shock waves through her body. Hit me up again, Mr. Coffee. (mimicking the GOAT) she shouts at the waking world – “LET’S GO“!

Yesterday was downright frostbitable. Oh, yes it was! How do I know? I went for a walk at lunch. Because I could. Beautiful, sunny, albeit a little breezy, so what if it’s winter! You can pull a faux fur lined parka hood over the hat on your damn head, just like I did, lol. I was covered, literally and metaphorically, ready to enjoy the world – out there. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Six Sentence Stories invites you to take a walk out there on the landscape that is your imagination. Tell us of your travels. In precisely 6 sentences. Fantasy, intrigue, mystery, poetry, historical, futuristic…need I go on? Write a Six Sentence Story, publish it, return here, link it up and with the click on a thumbnail we all have opportunity to make our worlds a little bit bigger. Because we can.

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
Raise your hands. Who of you are “jotters”? (yes, still using pen and paper!) Will one of you explain this to me, lol. And yo! Those of you of the younger demographic – to what do you attribute this thing? Or is age irrelevant? The writing of words on pieces of paper that somehow wind up not in the same place over time, discovered later, treasured trinkets (sometimes, lol), in a word, “jots”.  At Six Sentence Stories, you might consider the 6 and only 6 sentences you write as “jottings” or,  if you’re of a mind as Chris, Clark, A. Mage, Paul, and Reena to embark on a serial journey, we say “hurray”! Today, you are cordially invited to submit your piece of fiction, fantasy, essay, drama, poetry, soc or next scene in your serial story, presented in precisely 6 sentences, and join in the festivities here at the blog hop known as Six Sentence Stories. You’ll find hop rules below.
Write often. You never know where words will take you.

It snowed! A bunch. 64 degrees this past Sunday. 10-12 inches of snow the following day (how wild is that, lol) and the gift of a day off as my office closed and extended the weekend. What does not close are the doors to this venue. Six Sentence Stories opens regardless of weather and circumstance as you and I gather every week to engage in marvelous storytelling. 6 sentences at a time. Doors open this evening at 6:00 pm eastern standard time U.S.  Everyone is encouraged to bring a story or poem or scene from a wip using this week’s prompt word, then go mingle amongst yourselves. If you haven’t written yours yet, still plenty of time so…let’s write people!

I wrote stories from the time I was a little girl, but I didn’t want to be a writer. I wanted to be an actress. I didn’t realize then that it’s the same impulse. It’s make-believe. It’s performance.– Joan Didion

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and another edition of Six Sentence Stories!
Geez, thanks for that one Mr. McKee. Yet, isn’t it part of the motivation for continuing this thing we do? Are we not word alchemists? Do we not create, conjure, transform? Words into sentences. How fortunate there is an establishment to serve as laboratory in which to craft our stories – 6 sentences at a time. I speak of the ever trending blog hop, Six Sentence Stories. Each Sunday a prompt word is given and each week, beginning Wednesday evening, we are asked to link our story or poem or scene, next serial installment or “soc”, then allow our magic to work its way around the globe. Stories that reach for our readers’ hands; guides them from the present moment to somewhere else. We hope you’ll join us, one and all.

Let’s Hope it’s a Good One. A TToT

Good greetings everyone! Christmas morning in the mid-Atlantic; I’ve been awake for hours. (why, no, why would I think my body would sleep in, indulge in the gift of not having to get up for work, lol) Whatev, more time awake is better, yes? While it be morning where I reside, it may not be where you live, you of the future. But what of it. We’re all here at this moment and at this moment I’m throwin’ down some TToTs for the Ten Things of Thankful Blog Hop hosted by none other than, Dyanne Dillon. Without further ado, my 10 offerings…

One: This day. Another opportunity.
Two: Magic.
Three: Friends. Old (no, not calling you old!) and new.
Four: The internet. In no small part for facilitating #’s 1, 2, 3.
Five: Music, words – language of heart and soul.
Six: Six Sentence Stories and Six Sentence Café and Bistro.
Seven: Participants and Patrons. See #6.
Eight: The Wakefield Doctrine.
Nine: Other clarks. See #8.
Ten: Lakota Peyote ~ Healing Song ~

At Diner’s Edge. It’s a 6.

Twilight – a time of power and possibility when daylight has yet to cease, it’s ebb still hovering horizon’s edge; darkness has yet to fully unfurl its cloak, it is a time worthy of Mr. Dalí’s brush.

At 6 foot two, Tomassa “Tommy” Bianchi towered over Fr. Luca Lazarus; reaching around to the right of his old friend from seminary school, he pushed open the silver framed door of the Juke Box Diner, the small bell attached to the door tinkling, a sacristy bell announcing their departure into the dwindling day.

“Listen Luca, I  don’t disbelieve all you’ve told me but like the biblical Thomas, I’ve doubt in your conclusion you opened a door – no, wait – let me finish – sure, I believe in spiritual realms, other dimensions, whatever you want to call them; I acknowledge if one believes in the existence of God, there must also exist its antithesis, a not God, but tell me again what about the exorcism of this man, Luis, has you convinced you invited Satan himself into the world, to be fair, isn’t the state of the world sufficient evidence evil already reigns the earth?”

What, Tommy?… instinct, physical reaction. My interaction with Luis post exorcism, while brief was for lack of a better term, otherworldly, there wasn’t any sense of feeling good for having driven an evil spirit from this man’s body, and Luis’s wife Maria – I saw the doubt creep into her eyes as soon as her husband began to speak, doubt that quickly turned to panicked fear. If I did what I’m convinced I did, reserve a seat for me in hell because dear friend, there is more to this story.”

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
It is often a hectic time, end of the year. There are celebrations and events taking place across our planet. It is an event we all share in common – the conclusion of another 12 months of life. And the closer we get to the last day of the last month, we often ask the question – “How can I/we make the approaching year different? How can we shake things up a bit? In what ways shall we challenge ourselves to experience the possibilities surrounding us every waking moment.” To that end, let us consider a small, yet not insignificant exercise with the potential to expand not only our own world but that of others. Six Sentence Stories. What is it? It is a writing challenge that allows expression of our creative selves on a global scale; an opportunity to engage with others who share a common interest. Writing. The rules of this hop are très simple, बहुत सरल, gu math sìmplidh, とてもシンプル. Story, poem, scene, soc, memoir-ette. Write exactly 6 sentences, return here to the ‘Edge beginning Wednesday evening and link your Six Sentence Story. Tell me afterwards you’re not glad you did 😉
