Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories! Time travel. Physicists persist in discovering that which will make it real. One day, it will be more than theory. One day, scientists will validate the theoretical time-dilation effect of Special Relativity and while that takes care of the future, what about the past? Pat over to “A season and a time” commented at my Six this past week saying, in part – “The music brought back a memory of a beautiful experience from many years ago…” Music. Not everyone has the wonder of time travel through it however, music is magic. Now, more than ever in our collective lifetime, we look for those tools that have the power to facilitate a little magic, provide respite, make us smile and dance and sing. In the words of Ray Davies – “don’t forget to dance.” And write! Have a wonderful week everyone, be safe, and write when you can. I’ll read you soon 😀
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 🙂
PROMPT WORD: NOISE
“The danger that keeps me just a little frightened with every book I write, however, is that I’ll overreach myself once too often and try to write a story that I’m just plain not talented or skillful enough to write. That’s the dilemma every storyteller faces. It is painful to fail. But it is far sadder when a storyteller stops wanting to try.” – Orson Scott Card
In an effort to better myself (“uh, huh”) and to broaden my horizons (“oh yeah”) I have tried to browse the ethernet more (“that’s cybernet”), no, wait, cyberspace (“bingo“) and read a variety – an “eclectica” of stuff to see what I can see. I am looking for insight, inspiration and maybe a little psychic push. My name is GirlieOnTheEdge and I’m a lazy diletante. There I said it. I acknowledge what I am and damned if I don’t need some help! Tell me. What are the steps I should (need to) take to become a writer of words that please, pleasure, dazzle and amaze? Yeah, I know. Write every day. I’m thinking discipline is the unspoken bad boy here and no amount of cropping his butt is going to make it eaiser to aquire.
“Aquire, aquisition“. Isn’t it all about “aquisition”? Hey, what?! Did I not just answer the most frequently asked question by individuals since the dawn of time? (yawn) Artistic, intellectual, emotional, financial – all these are the answers. All of us wish to aquire all or some of these “things” in an amount sufficient to satiate ourselves. “Identify longing and desire then proceed to the office on your right and please, keep the line moving!”
So your number’s up. Over a loudspeaker you hear “next!” You walk up to the door, hand trembling. (ignore the beads of sweat breaking out on your forehead – someone just forgot to turn on the ac. ya, right) You take hold of the doorknob and begin to turn. Appears to be opening just fine. Whew! The sigh of relief you exhale leaves you lightheaded. Finally, you’re at the place where you sign the papers. You read them over, everything seems to be in order….except you d-i-d-n’-t r-e-a-d t-h-e f-i-n-e p-r-i-n-t.
“Thank you for coming in Ms. GirlieOnTheEdge. We just need you to fill out this supplemental questionaire…”
