It’s Six Sentence Story Thursday Link Up!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and another edition of Six Sentence Stories!
I began writing this post yesterday, December 21, 2021 because it was the best day. No, not because it is officially winter in the Northern Hemisphere. It was the best day because beginning today, the days begin to get…longer. Oh, yeah. Longer baby. And that makes everything a little bit better.  You know what else makes things a little bit better? Writing a Six Sentence Story. Exercise, adventure, social event. It’s all here. And more. Please join us this week in writing and sharing 6 and only 6 sentences of fantasy, fiction, mystery, poetry or the next installment in your serial story. Got to run. Enjoy C & H. Smile today, everyone. Smile.

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

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories! Set to hit news stands later this week, you may wonder if you’ll have time to write a Six. The beauty of blog hops is you have an entire week to travel the imagination highway, write/re-write/trash/write. You get it. Enter Six Sentence Stories. A blog hop whose entrance requires 6 and only 6 sentences. Life is short, often complicated, sometimes outright crazy busy yet amidst the crazy we acknowledge the merit our imagination and creative drive plays in keeping us sane. Icing on that little crudité? Participating in Six Sentence Stories broadens the boundaries of our worlds, introduces us to people and places we’d otherwise not know. How rich is that? Please join us later this week by linking your Six Sentence Story – poem, splash of soc, snippet of flash fiction/fantasy, or next installment from your wip. 6 and only 6, the number of sentences. Infinite the geography, time, place and characters. Here. Every week.

Rules of the hop:
Write 6 Sentences. No more. No less.

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
How was everyone’s week? Come on – ‘fess up, people. It’s ok if it was stupendous; it’s ok if it sucked. Heck, it’s ok if it was an Amtrak Acela rolling down the tracks at 3:00 am. Yeah, I’m still stuck on the time thing. Forgive. I digress. Thank you all for a fabulous collection of stories this past week! [Reminder to self: remember to check for the “2” at the bottom of the link page.] Thank you, Anne for closing out the hop. Since I seem to have finagled this as a “me centric” post, may I say last week was one like no other. End result, I find there are 9 more Six Sentence Stories yet to read. I look forward to them rounding out my morning 🙂 Retour à l’instant – today’s invitation goes out to writers everywhere to write a story, some poetry, a gaggle of soc, the next episode from your serial story and then share it in the upcoming edition of the Six Sentence Story Blog Hop. May your week be all as you would have it and if not, may you find the best parts of it. Read you soon!

PROMPT WORD LOST

The purpose of writing is to inflate weak ideas, obscure pure reasoning, and inhibit clarity. With a little practice, writing can be an intimidating and impenetrable fog!”

Welcome all, to GirlieOnTheEdge. This is a “Thanksgiving” edition (for those who live in the U.S., Thursday is our Thanksgiving Day) of Six Sentence Stories, and I can say quite officially, I am thankful for all who participate in this blog hop 🙂 Imo, the act of giving thanks, privately or otherwise, is a beneficial practice. What else is beneficial? Why writing, of course! To that end, I offer up the link to this week’s Six Sentence Story Blog Hop. So, what say people, panic mode or not, let’s release our creativity and go wild! Get those fingers tapping on the keyboards and wander the wonderful world of words 🙂 Whatever the words, keep in mind a few simple rules for joining in the festivity:

CUE WORD: TELEVISION

Hobbes: Do you have an idea for your story yet?
Calvin: No, I’m waiting for inspiration. You can’t just turn on creativity like a faucet. You have to be in the right mood.
Hobbes: What mood is that?
Calvin: Last-minute panic. —Bill Watterson

What time is it? What day? Still Time?? Yay!

Hey! Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. It’s all of a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, night, Sunday morning and well, I’m trying to figure out how in the world to begin this week’s 6 sentence story. I’ve finally found some words. You would think I’d have an advantage being the one to provide the cue word. Not true. I find myself in the same boat I often find myself in – the boat of no ideas adrift on a sea of words, no port calling my name *sigh*

I’m going to go out on a limb and say “I’m late”! Late to the blog hop I moderate, administrate and otherwise participate. Yet, here it is Sunday, posting my SSS, what? 3 days after the link opened (or is that 4? lol). But that’s the beauty of it! There are at least 5 days available each week to post your 6 Sentence Story. So without further ado….

The harder she tried, the more elusive the task.
The more she persisted, the greater her frustration.
Throwing her hands in the air, as if they were detachable limbs, she re-focused to the task at hand.
She sat, hands poised over the keyboard, smiled to herself.
While she and writer’s block had become great friends, she knew she had a responsibility so she took the first step and cued up a blank page.
Not all that familiar with the man’s writing, surely he was on point when he is quoted as saying “ultimately the bond of all companionship, whether in marriage or in friendship, is conversation” and so she began “hello, old friend, how have you been?”
