Enjoy your week, enjoy your writing and I’ll see everyone back here this coming Thursday. Hey, listen, if you don’t have a story by Thursday, don’t sweat it. The link stays open until the following Tuesday 🙂 See you fabulous writers soon!

PROMPT WORD: MOUNTAIN

“But words are things, and a small drop of ink,
Falling like dew, upon a thought, produces
That which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.”George Gordon, Lord Byron

Nonstop to Nowhere. It’s a 6.

Standing at the aged and tarnished turnstile, a cacophony of subway sounds bouncing off the underground walls, I wondered if I was making the right decision, hesitating like a drag racer in burn down. Seized with doubt, my surroundings seemed to disappear as fear quickly, efficiently, quarantined courage, a certain and unwilling hostage. What was I thinking – or was I simply acting in the moment of the moment, instinctively, body taking over where mind went silent? All the physical evidence, and there was a lot of very convincing evidence, pointed to me as the perpetrator. I knew it was a frame, but who would believe me? I pushed through the metal arm and ran for the train.

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s Word Prompt for the newest, upcoming edition of Six Sentence Stories! Was talking with a fellow writer recently who reminded me that everything is a story. Not that the story always or easily reveals itself, but it is there. So, whether it takes form as a story, a poem or a missive, or as a snippet from a work in progress or soon to be work in progress, it’s all good. I hope you’ll share a story this coming Thursday and join in for the adventure that is storytelling 🙂 Enjoy your week, my friends. Good writing and I’ll see you soon!

PROMPT WORD: FRAME

“Writing is easy. All you have to do is cross out the wrong words.”Mark Twain

“You are getting very sleepy…”. It’s a 6.

Now just wait a darned minute…this isn’t what I pictured at all, I mean where are the overstuffed, antiquated bookshelves or the big, billowy furniture or the obscure, yet tasteful artwork??

Tell me Todd, what exactly were you expecting?

(stuttering slightly) I, I, I guess I don’t really know except it certainly wasn’t (arms gesturing outward, his body turning a 360)…this. Janeen described you, well, she described this place anyway, way differently than what I’m seeing.

Isn’t that the point of our meeting, to explore what you’re “seeing” – for your future as well as, if I may add, what you’re not seeing; to find a viable method by which you can achieve your goal(s)? Here, I want you to relax; keep your focus on the tip of this pointer as I gently move it side to side…side to side…until your eyes become heavy, your body relaxes, until your mind is open to…

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and the newest prompt word for Six Sentence Stories. Life is rife with reminders of the brevity of our existence. So. What do we do, how do we process those moments, those reminders? Some of us write.  Anyone up for writing a
Six Sentence Story this week? Regulars familiar with this hop don’t need to refer to the rules however, for writers stopping by for a look-see, know that “story” can take the form of a poem, an excerpt from a work in progress (wip) or memoir. In other words, as long as your piece contains the prompt word, it may be in any format or genre as long as it is written in exactly 6 sentences. Enjoy the moment, the day; enjoy your week and I’ll see you all back here this coming Thursday 🙂
