Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
It’s with a little bit of sadness that I write. I began feeling so several days ago when I observed the subtle change in the morning’s light, this morning ever more so, as I realize today represents the end of summer *sigh*. It’s true! The calendar in this part of the hemisphere may read “First Day of Summer”, but for myself and others, it’s the end. Days will now become shorter. Thanks for letting me get that off my chest, I appreciate your ear, which in this format, is reading. Which is what we do here at Six Sentence Stories when we’re not writing. Say what? What do we write for this blog hop/writing challenge? We write about whatever our imaginations might be putting up at the moment – poetry and serial scenes, flash fiction and fantasy, stream of consciousness or a bit of historical fiction… then we format it into precisely 6 sentences using the prompt word provided below, and return to GirlieOnTheEdge this coming Wednesday. Then what? Then we link the URL to our SSS and begin reading, chat with the authors, tell our friends about what we do and invite them over. We love meeting new people! Our world is small enough, eh? Let’s make it bigger 🙂

Rules of the hop:
Write 6 Sentences. No more. No less.
Use the current week’s prompt word.
Link up at Wednesday’s post. Link goes live at 6:00 pm through Saturday late…
Spread the word and put in a good one to your fellow writers 😀

PROMPT WORDSEASON

A word has power in and of itself. It comes from nothing into sound and meaning; it gives origin to all things.” – N. Scott Momaday

Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
You could say I grew up in a musical household. My mom had a great appreciation for music, though she didn’t play an instrument. I never heard her sing out loud though I suspect she did while no one was within earshot. My dad? A natural on the piano. From classical to classics of his day, to whatever was running through his fingers at the time, he was the guy at dinner parties everyone egged on to entertain them. Roots. Sometimes we see them, sometimes not. Writing is a bit like that. When we don’t readily see the words, hear the notes. When the phrasing doesn’t quite translate from our heads to the paper or instrument. Oh, the pressure, lol. Enter Six Sentence Stories. The only pressure you’ll find here is the requirement of 6 sentences. Potential springboard, those 6 sentences allows us to participate in a most enjoyable collective activity that fosters community and opportunity and links outward. Please, join us this week as we write another Six Sentence story, poem, soc or book scene. It’s a lot of fun, a learning experience and it gets us out of the house 🙂

Rules of the hop:
Write 6 Sentences. No more. No less.
Use the current week’s prompt word.
Return here, link your post Wednesday night through Saturday late…

The first word gives origin to the second, the first and second to the third, and the third to the fourth, and so on. You cannot begin with the second word.N. Scott Momaday
