Write On!; #SixSentenceStory

It’s only six sentences.

But sometimes inspiration gasps for breath, ideas hunch unrecognizable at dark edges.

Still, the cloud cloaked mountain hunches over the lake.

The hunched heron keeps a hungry eye at the water, ready.

The writer hunches over the keyboard waiting, wanting.

The word from Denise at GirlieontheEdge this week is “hunch”, but I have a hunch you figured that out from my Six Sentences. No story, I am not as proficient as that blue heron is. I have been finding it harder to write now that I have more time to do it. I’m not sure what I do all day, but it takes all my time. I do want to take some time now to thank Denise and the Six Sentence Story community for being such a supportive and encouraging group. 

Last February Denise gave us “plant” and I apologized for a somewhat sketchy offering then too. But I have declared that my blog is not just a display case, it is also a workbench. I am glad to have put the unfinished plant sketch out for you because of the feedback it received. I might have left it be, but was encouraged by the Sixers to keep working with it. I did and in it’s expanded and more polished form will be published Saturday at The Hopper Environmental Lit Magazine.

I’m thrilled they were interested in that piece, and I am appreciative of its origins here as a Six Sentence Story offering. Thank you!

  1. v cool on your getting your work published

    I agree with the sentiment that this forum is fun writing but it is also very beneficial practice, ’cause, like when it comes to art, especially the rhetorical variety, ‘there ain’t no such thing as too much practice.’

  2. Gotta keep plugging away D. I hear you on not being inspired 24/7…….especially in the Summer when it’s the time to be outside. You have inspired me as I never thought of taking a SSS and enlarging it to fit a broader canvass. I may just go back over my stories and see if I can be inspired to write more. Looking forward to reading your expanded plant story. Love your idea of the blog as a workbench. So true.
