6 Word Story: 6/30

Today is the last day of June and I realized I have SO much to do. The walk this morning was overbearingly hot and I just wanted to turn around and go back home. I have to add a couple more walks to meet the activity points and I’m hoping this evening will be cooler. I wish there was an underground tunnel that I could walk in and stay cool but not a drippy, smelly one. There are quite a few definitions given for the prompt and I’m trying to find one that examples courage. The underground railroad comes to mind but that’s a lot of history to get into 6 words.


Prompt Word: Underground

 

6 Word Story: 6/29

This was another difficult one as I didn’t want to go completely fictional and still wanted to post a positive 6-word story that stayed within the courage theme.


Prompt Word: Dragon Slayer

6 Word Story: 6/28

I’m not quite sure how I feel about this month’s prompts from Page Flutter. I get that they all fall under the theme of courage but it feels as if all the prompts can be used to write a fictional crime story.  I searched today’s prompt and found a lot of articles about confessing sins and Bible quotes. Here’s my attempt at today’s prompt.


Prompt Word: Public Confession

6 Word Story: 6/27

Trying to find your own way, your own path, can be harder than finding a needle in a haystack. It seems like someone somewhere has done something similar to what you are trying to achieve. Then I realized I was looking at it the prompt word all wrong. Sure, someone has had a similar situation to overcome as me (or you) but their circumstance is different from yours.


Prompt Word: Less Traveled

 

6 Word Story 6/26

Boundless is another word that I had to look the definition up for and in doing so…that didn’t help me either. I understand the word but drew a blank when trying to write something. Here’s my attempt.


Prompt Word: Boundless

 

6 Word Story: 6/25

Yesterday I took some time and went to the local zoo. I didn’t paint, didn’t write, and didn’t listen to my writing class lecture. It was one of the most refreshing things I could’ve done. With everyone’s work schedule, son’s social life, and my personal interests it’s difficult getting everyone in one place. Even though the zoo was changing the animals out and there wasn’t much there we still had fun.

I still think yesterday’s prompt and today’s could be a part one/ part two or one in the same but I can still see how they can be used as different prompts. Overcoming a fear is one of the most exhilarating feelings a person can have. There are fears that are crippling (I have them) and may not ever conquer them. This is where people believe that they are weak but that’s not true. How a person handles the fear is still a form of conquering it.


Prompt Word: Fear Conquered

6 Word Story: 6/24

I have a lot of fears and some of those cause anxiety and panic attacks. I have learned to deal with most but some are unshakable due to a past life. However, I do try and get past them or move forward but at the very least I’ll remind myself of who I’m with or where I’m at. This prompt actually should go with tomorrows. Maybe a part 1 and part 2 prompt idea?


Prompt Word: Biggest Fear

6 Word Story: 6/23

This should have been yesterday’s prompt. A chaotic day at work then even worse when I got home. Sure frozen pizza for the family and 0pt chili for me that was the least of my worries. Right now, the utility company is in the middle of changing connections for the water. Inspectors have been in out and of the house for a month (yeah that was a horrible anxious time for me) and we got the all clear. There wouldn’t be any water contamination in the house when the crossover is complete.

Last night, I don’t know what the workers did but we were without water for a few hours (I always keep bottled water on hand) then the electric went out. I couldn’t even finish my creative writing lecture. Hence the late Fenton post and the frustration directed towards the lead person of the crew. It was unacceptable to have the crew come back on Monday to get our utilities back on. Water was back at 11pm and the electric at 2am. I just got done doing dishes and made me a decent cup of coffee.

Happy Saturday fellow bloggers!


Prompt Word(s): Over the Edge

 

6 Word Story: 6/22

I have never heard of this phrase…words? I looked it up and found that I don’t have a problem with owning my own faults and I think that there needs to be more of this in this day and age. Instead of everyone blaming everyone else for their mistake, own it, learn from it, and move on.

Definition of Mea Culpaa formal acknowledgment of personal fault or error


Prompt Word: Mea Culpa
