It’s exciting to watch Six Sentence Stories branch out; find it’s way to the far reaches of the planet. Makes you wonder how big the world really is, lol.  I love when people who know people who come ’round the Six, stop by and then… someone else sees them, maybe they both go visit that person… here and there, back and forth to each others’ house and well, it’s a massive meet and greet by click (of the mouse). Awesome. Please join us this week. Share a story, poem, excerpt from your latest wip or perhaps an soc. Present it in 6 and only 6 sentences, and link it via the inlinkz (“Click here to enter” below) as we travel the planet’s neighborhood streets.

First drafts are for learning what your novel or story is about. Revision is working with that knowledge to enlarge & enhance an idea, to reform it . . . Revision is one of the true pleasures of writing.” – Bernard Malamud

Dreamscape. It’s a 6.

Highway hotel on overpass, skid marks smear the asphalt, careening corners, exit here. Weary worn, heart torn new day done, head on pillow, dreamscape waiting. Endure the pull, repel the push, landscape of living seeks shoreline of a dream. Tumbled, thrashed by roiling waves, soul seeks solitary skiff, safety on solid ground. Melancholy tempest screams defiance, into your arms, lover’s embrace. Zip line o’er reality’s dross, perfection attained, aerial acrobatics…

*****

Blood stained boots slung over their shoulders, Jaya and Ryan walked the deserted shoreline, toes curling and releasing sand hardened by winter’s grip, footprints effaced by the undulating flood current, it was a much needed respite. Overhead, the gulls’ mews echoed in the blush of the dawning day, the last of the stars retreating to daylight’s embrace.

Seven!” Come back, boy” – Ryan dared a whistle hoping to get the dog’s attention, now a blur of golden fur 50 yards ahead.

Yesterday, Ryan and I had taken out 20 rabids between us, as Miguel and Anna, the last of our band of survivors to break off from the group, headed north 5 days earlier; we especially missed their help in this last skirmish.

Admittedly, it was a little easier traveling with just Ryan and Seven; although Seven was still a puppy, he was incredibly smart, learned quickly and, as it turned out, could smell a rabid a mile or two out; I had no doubt there was something very special about Seven.

True to most of the zombie apocalypse movie scripts in the before time, rabids were most active during the nighttime hours, disappearing as soon as the sun hit the horizon.

Hey, Jaya, sun is rising fast, we’d better get going… ”

Constants. What are they? Where do they place on the hierarchy of living? How do we steel ourselves for the inevitable erosion of them in our lives? Stephen Covey said there are 3 constants in life – “change, choice and principles”. Got no argument with that however, might I suggest a 4th constant? Six Sentence Story Blog Hop. Josie Two Shoes launched her brainchild many moons ago and it’s been out here in the ‘verse ever since. As 2nd major-domo of this hop, I invite all creatives to join in – write, link and share, a 6 sentence story. What say? Let loose this week?
