Seasons – An Acrostic

Spices set out as a recipe is planned

Extra helpings just in case the taste has waned

Asking closest relatives for their seasoning secrets

Selecting just the right amount so the pot is not spoiled

Offering to share the results of seasoned foods

Nothing is much better than the loving care that goes into cooking


This is my contribution to the Six Sentence Story responding to the prompt “Season”

It is so hard to believe that this is the last post for June! Where did this month fly to? Let’s check out this weeks thankfuls:

  2. I am happy to announce publication of Sita Gaia’s “Knocking on the Body’s Door
  3. I am happy to announce that little Raena June was born on June 23 to my niece Kayla. They are both doing fine and get to go home today and the two big brothers will get to meet their sister.
  4. Daughter has had some troubles with sciatica and I tried another pain treatment method which helped her sleep better.
  5. Daughter has someone to take her to get her paint supplies for her art class in July. She is very excited about the class.
  6. There are plenty of things to do so I don’t get bored and lazy. HAHA
  7. Silvia, our Civic gets us where we need to go and even when the plastic under the oil plug ripped to shreds, she just shrugged it off and is now smoothly purring.
  8. There are more important things in life than constant worrying.

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…

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
How about another “P” word? Yes? Alright! Let’s give a shout out to the Atomic Mage for his suggestion 😀 So. Stepping out. Of our normal environs. Of our daily routines. Intentional or not. It’s about disruption. Can be a positive thing. Can jar us back to the moment if we have the (insert prompt word) to notice. Let’s face it. There are occasions when we need to engage in a little disruption to routine to remind us of the point of now, this day. And if that provides insight, creative drive, energy – seize upon it. And in so doing, a story comes to mind, or a poem or a stream of consciousness (“soc”) piece? Frame it within 6 and only 6 sentences and share it. With us. At Six Sentence Stories, this coming Thursday evening…

A nice, Strong Prompt!

GirlieOnTheEdge's Blog

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge and Sunday’s prompt word reveal for Six Sentence Stories!
In Sunday’s word prompt post of May 2nd, I entertained suggestions for future word prompts. To our delight, 3 writers:  Susan, Chris and Paula, provided 3 excellent words. This week’s word is the 3rd and final suggestion, courtesy of Paula. Taking a cue from the word (no pun intended, lol), let’s consider the concept of “letting go.” Sometimes it’s in our best interest. As writers, this is easier said than done. Yet, the “experts” have shown us when all the words are written, when the story appears complete, it very well may not be. Until we go back and read it yet again. “Oh, that’s just the edit phase“. True statement. Yet, how often returning to a draft do we realize that perhaps a character isn’t needed? Maybe we thought we knew the story but…
