She made a new Rule. It’s a 6.

Image result for writing and stumbling blocks

she’d never been this late before, in fact, she was always there to open the door

to writers come early, writers come late, was it possible she’d put too much on her plate

never a week had she ever been last yet here she was, how many days passed

rule or number, clergy or bird, so much flexibility in this week’s word

finally she sat coffee in hand (still a full pot), the words would come slowly perhaps not

..Cardinal red clouds collided with amber melting sky; I decided there’d be no rain tonight…

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and the event known as Six Sentence Stories! “Event?” you ask? Check it out for your own self! The 411 in a nutshell:  Sundays, I publish a post providing everyone the prompt word to use in a 6 sentence story, poem or snippet from a wip. Wednesday evening, in deference to our friends living in the future, I publish the post containing the Inlinkz link-a-ma-jig, the magical doorway leading to a single page where everyone’s story (everyone’s thumbnail link to their story, to be factual) appears. Easy peasy 😀 Link your Six, then click on everyone else’s Six and enjoy the ride! If you’re an early bird like Mimi, Susan and Pratihba were last week, don’t forget to come back later in the day/week to check out additional Sixes. It’s fabulously fun, fashionably forward and an all around enjoyable write. Hope you’ll join us with your Six Sentence Story. Read you soon!

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. The calendar flips to another week’s beginning. Time once again for the Sunday Reveal for the upcoming Six Sentence Stories challenge! And the prompt word to use is…right down there. See? Underneath the rules of the hop 🙂 Expectation. It’s automatic sometimes. You might say it has the ability to hijack spontaneity now and then but here, at SSS, you never know what to expect! Which is precisely what makes it such an enjoyable writing challenge. I hope everyone has fun with their stories this week. Write well, write often and have a fabulous week!

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!

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!
