It’s Six Sentence Story Thursday Link Up!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. Welcome to 2019 and welcome..
to the Six Sentence Story Blog Hop. For those of you not familiar with the history of this hop, it was first the brainchild of one Josie Two Shoes who, after a time, handed the reigns to Zoe, of Uncharted fame. In March of last year, Zoe made the decision to relinquish her hosting duties and sought a successor to whom she might pass the baton. Enter moi. For some of us, the beginning of each new year brings with it an instinctive desire to change, improve, make strides forward or to….maybe just mix it up lol. Whatever your inclination, I hope you’ll consider joining us here at the ‘Edge each Thursday. I guarantee once you write that first Six, you’ll be hooked! Who’s ready to try something new 😀

A hop that will lead you to a myriad of writing landscapes 😀 Sound fun? It is!

CUE WORDMATTER

If you don’t think there is magic in writing, you probably won’t write anything magical.” – Terry Brooks

Sweet Doesn’t Come Without the Sour. It’s a 6.

“I don’t want to die Harriet! I don’t want to die!”

“Calm down Bernard, get ahold of yourself, you’re going to give yourself a meltdown.”

“How can I calm down Harriet when it’s looking like not only am I going to die but you are too, I mean how did this happen, when did this happen?!”

Harriet looked over at Bernard, love revealing his rough edges, the slow deterioration of age that, up until now, she refused to see; in her most soothing voice she said…”Bernard, listen to me – even if we’re both facing death, everyone knows it will be painless, instantaneous.”

Bernard clung to Harriet, she to her Bernard; in their final moments, each felt a gentle lifting upwards followed by a sensation of sudden free-fall and in seconds dissolved into black oblivion as one.

“Hey, honey, I just used the last 2 sugar cubes in my coffee, mind picking up some more while you’re out?”

CUE WORD: SUGAR

“I would hurl words into this darkness and wait for an echo, and if an echo sounded, no matter how faintly, I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight, to create a sense of hunger for life that gnaws in us all.”  -Richard Wright.

 

 

Calling all Sentences! I need 6 Volunteers! Yah, it’s a 6!

“Where?!… no, I didn’t see them anywhere near here…of course, I looked…it’s not as if I haven’t been down this road before, I know what I’m doing and my god, I only need 6!”

A junior editor at a small publishing house on S Coast Highway 101 off of 3rd Street in Encinitas, CA, Trina was struggling with creativity lately and dubiously entertaining herself in her cubicle at “We Publish When Others Won’t”, in search of a story line instead of reading the manuscript in front of her.

Staring into blank space, she confidently decided an idea would pop into her head on her bike ride home.

Living a mere 6 miles from her office, Trina often rode her bike to work through the laziness that was Leucadia, all beach and sand and surfer cool, it was without contest a surfer’s paradise having several of the best beaches in Southern California.

Last week, as she pedaled down the boardwalk on her way to “WPWOP”, she spotted Dusty, an aging, ageless “surfer dude”, he owned and operated the local surf shop and was the last person she’d ever suspect to tell her about a blog hop, Six Sentence Stories, and what a cool writing challenge it was.

Even before she pulled the Mongoose up along side him, she could hear his gravely voice “Hey, baby stop a minute and we’ll catch up, whatsay?” and so she slowed to a halt and smiled widely as she realized she had a soft spot for this grizzly guy, this businessman/aspiring writer with a sensitive soul and realized how true that the cover doesn’t always tell the story.
