It’s Six Sentence Story Thursday Link Up!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and another edition of Six Sentence Stories!
December. We’re officially in the last month of this year. Historically, it’s a busy month for many of us what with end of year stuff (business and otherwise), various holidays (if one so observes). Inherent in the rush is the feeling of speed. Runaway, out of control, speed. Talking with a co-worker yesterday, I remarked how incredibly fast the 2nd part of the year has passed and quipped perhaps instead of a wall calendar of tropical beach scenes, I should have one of high speed and bullet trains, lol. Regardless of how quickly the days, hours, minutes pass, there remains a constant each week – Six Sentence Stories. If you have a moment or two to indulge your muse, please consider sharing a poem or story or wip excerpt. As the title suggests, you only need 6 little ole sentences. Done and done. Link and share. Good times for all. Read you soon 🙂

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!
I’m unable to find suitable words to describe this early morning in “mid-Atlantica”. 7:30 a.m. brought with it a brilliance that shone through glass panes and cocoa colored sheers to splash greetings all over the room. A challenge, a dare. Get up, out and engage the world! But first, there is the important matter of the Sunday prompt post for this week’s Six Sentence Story blog hop 😀 If you are so inclined to kick off shoes and socks, I invite all to come ’round this week and play in the sandbox of Six Sentence Stories. Hope to read everyone back here in a few days and may this week be all that you would have it.

I’m writing a first draft and reminding myself that I’m simply shoveling sand into a box so that later I can build castles.” – Shannon Hale

They are no mirage. It’s a 6.

Why am I compelled to dance when I hear Natalie singing songs en francais?
Why is it I soften and dissolve with the first inhalation of ocean salt air?
Why am I easily lured, held hostage by some books and not others?
Why am I overcome with a sense of freedom at the onset of a road trip?
Why is it “heavy metal” is my happy music?
Fortunate I am for an infinite number of oasis that populate my day to day desert…

Confession time. Very often I wake in the morning with a melody and/or lyrics to a song looping in my head, sometimes it’s a song I’ve not listened to in ages. Sometimes it’s not even a song I know well (what’s up with that, lol) And so I’ve thought “hmm.. perhaps I should write down the song titles each morning, return at the end of the week and see if there’s a story there“. Well, we all know the answer to that one kids, right? 😀 Needless to say, I’m appreciative of Mr. Bradbury’s encouraging advice in today’s quote. It is, after all, what we’ve been doing here at Six Sentence Stories, 52 weeks of the year for, well, a bunch of years. If you’ve a mind to, we’d love for you to write and link a 6 sentence story or poem or excerpt from a wip. Creativity. Let’s share it.

PROMPT WORDOASIS

The things that the novel does not say are necessarily more numerous than those it does say and only a special halo around what is written can give the illusion that you are reading also what is not written.” – Italo Calvino

Second Chance. It’s a 6.

He stood, silhouette in the doorway, dawn’s first light peeking over treed horizon, early frost nipping grass blades and felt his smile getting sleepy, there were no regrets

From the very first he laid eyes on her he could see the potential lying just beneath the surface, waiting for that right person to come along who could uncover her beauty. Practical, realist to a fault, there was no kidding himself – the journey would be long and probably more work than he should take on, yet without hesitation, he committed himself 100%.

Working her gently at first, he got a better feel for what he was dealing with; as each layer was stripped away, his confidence grew that she was the gem he’d envisioned. Everything he needed could be found in one dented, once white metal cabinet – the tools and implements of his craft; among them, all manor of polishes (wax was for amateurs, so he joked), pads, brushes and his prized buffer.

He knew the day would come they would go their separate ways, and as he watched from the block the crowd of people following her into the building, the driver slowly bringing her through the lane, he had no doubt she would do right by him as he had done right by her.

Interruption, distraction. In our current clime, what no doubt comes to mind first reading those words, is something negative. As counterpoint, we as a group, come together at the ‘Edge each week, “interrupting and distracting” each other for purposes of creative and social engagement via the Six Sentence Story blog hop. And that is anything but negative. In fact, it’s the highlight of the week! Where else can you break mid week to begin a 3 day sojourn of written adventures, world travel, or sit a spell by the occasional “fireside”. All of that for the low, low price of 6, and only 6, sentences. Why that’s so low it’s practically free 😉.

Suck it up Buttercup. It’s a 6.

So who’s up for a bit of stream ‘o consciousness? I thought so! 😀 Let her rip, Girlie…

Yo glitter girl, think you’ve got it all going on, what with diamond clips in hair streaked with perpetual rebellion? Oh you can doc walk with the best, seven nation army at your side, but at the end of the day, danger loiters, best remember:  don’t feed the monster. Constant company (invited or not), true they say  –  familiarity breeds contempt. Keep vigil for the tether. Thenceforth embrace it homeslice, dominate it – Elvis don’t lie – it’s now or never. Suck it up Buttercup, no more time to squander.

There is a blanket of quintessentially autumn color covering the still green grass. Courtesy of a sky way over-greyed, rain splatters lightly the orange and yellow and golden ornaments, annual gifts from the immediate deciduous community. Perhaps on another day, I might find the weather “gloomy” and “stay in bed, read a book worthy“. Today, this day, I do not and will soon venture out with polka dotted umbrella for a walk. Who knows? Will I find words along the way for my SSS this week? What about you? If you haven’t written your Six yet (unlike some of us, and I’m not naming names, lol) take a look around and see what might be in need of expressing. If you can gather 6 and only 6 sentences, arrange them in the form of a story, poem, or scene from your latest work in progress, then we encourage, welcome and will wait for you to link said work and share with us the fruits of your “walk”. Read you soon, everyone!
