Sunday’s Six Sentence Story Word Prompt!

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. Sunday is the day I post what I hope will be a fun, challenging, engaging prompt word to use for Thursday’s Six Sentence Story Bloghop. Looking to jump start a short story or book chapter, or maybe there’s been the dangle of a tease for a poem tapping at the back door of your brain? Why not use this writing challenge to get the ball point pen rolling 😀 You’d be surprised (as many of us can attest) at how effective Six Sentence Stories is at prodding a character into existence, or twisting a plot line from the tangle of single lines our muses selfishly collect, stubbornly refusing to release. Simply put, why don’t you join us this week?

Rules of the hop:
Write 6 Sentences. No more. No less.
Use the current week’s prompt word.
Come back here on Thursday, link your post…
Spread the word and put in a good one to your fellow writers 🙂

It’s Six Sentence Story Thursday Link Up!

How-dee! Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. The wind does not scream Mary this evening, however it does scream snowisintheairitjustmighthappen outside my 2nd story window. And you know what? I couldn’t have asked for a more suitable soundtrack as I prepare to present what everyone is waiting for…the link to this week’s edition of Six Sentence Sentence Stories! Before I do, I’d like to give a warm welcome to Faith at Prairie Wind Press who joined in a little later in last week’s SSS. Check out her story. An existential conversation starter if ever there was one. Cool. Speaking of cool, I look forward to reading all the regulars – you guys never disappoint! And, I hope we all have the pleasure of meeting some new folks. If you’ve got 6 Sentences begging to be let loosed, come on by and slap ’em on the wall 😀 Read you soon, peeps!
