6 Word Story: 5/31

Unfortunately, there wasn’t the 31st day on Page Flutter’s prompt list. It’s perfectly ok. I make mistakes all the time. That’s how we know we’re human. So, I’m going to just make mine up using the theme for the month.


Prompt Word: Focus

6 Word Story: 5/19

I woke up in a better mood even after a nightmare. Those are different from my flashback dreams and terrors. This was the product of watching too many crime shows. I did manage to wake up to see the beginning of the royal wedding. I really wanted to see if it was supposed to rain all day. Rainy days and watercolor painting outside don’t really go hand in hand. I may have to work from reference photos…or possibly sitting in the car?


Prompt Word: Artist’s Eye

 

6 Word Story: 5/10

I had to look this word up for some sort of inspiration. With the pain riding up through my back and sitting here at a job I’m not too happy with right now, I need some sort of help. A spotter is someone trained to look for something. I didn’t realize that there were all sorts of spotter titles. I will also be catching up this afternoon, even if the family has to eat leftovers.


Prompt Word: Spotter

 

 

6 Word Story: 5/1 and Reminder

The first day of May, already?! Where did the time go? I have huge plans and dreams and starting on either is frightening and exciting all at once. The 6-word story prompt ideas actually come from Page Flutter if you would like to attempt these mini-stories along with me. With everything that I want to accomplish the theme for this month is, ‘FOCUS’ which I’m going to need a lot of. I will not be posting much writing this month since I’m working on a novella but am asking for help from fellow bloggers. I have a couple of polls running right now for some giveaways:

Writers:

Artists:

Poll closes Thursday and the giveaways will commence. I hope everyone enjoys participating.


Prompt Word: Bullseye

Her target sighted. Twitchy Fingers. Submitted.

 

6 Word Story Day 16

This story came so quick for me. I think that it’s easier for me to focus on the macabre/horror realm of things than it is for positive/spiritual. It was still fun and I am so proud of myself for sticking through everything.


Prompt Word: Spirit Guide

“Male seeking soulmate” replied the planchette.

6 Word Story Day 9

I’m having a really hard time focusing on writing with everything that’s going on around me and in my head. I learned something new about myself. The 15 minutes I have to myself waiting to pick up my kids from school a word tree helped. Is it called that anymore? I took today’s prompt word and drew lines to words that in mind had some type of connection to the prompt word. Woot! I felt productive for completing such a small task. Then after playing around with words and editing the sentence 13 times (don’t judge) I was content with the sentence chosen.  I also learned that a lot of my 6 word stories stem from my past abuse, my CPTSD, depression and anxiety.


Day 9 Prompt: ZZZZZ….


Her nightmares dissipated when she slept.

Adventure: Class 2-Clover Isn’t Having It!

As I posted in my journal post I was hit with a really bad bought of depression and wasn’t motivated to do anything. I paid for the obedience classes and no matter how I felt we were going.To prepare for this class (since she didn’t like any treats from last class other than her dog food I brought) I

pan seared in Corn Oil some chicken livers. I grew up on them andthey are awesome fried but she can’t really have all the fatty southern goodness like I use to have. I tried it, it was awful but she didn’t mind it so much. I wanted her to taste test before taking it to the class. I also peeled and chopped apple chunks and mixed the liver, apple, and her dog food all in one treat bag and we were set.

We get to class, and the sassy little girl wasn’t having ANY of it. I felt so defeated and deflated which didn’t help my depression at all. Then the trainer pulled out some toys. Toys that we don’t give our baby anymore because they last 1.5 minutes (and that’s on a good day). We practiced focus, leave it, and wait/stay. She was doing good but still distracted and I couldn’t figure out why. That was until I started dripping sweat, my heart started pounding and then the shaking. What a perfect fucking time to have a panic attack. She sensed it the whole time before I even started showing and feeling symptoms. When the attack had passed all she wanted to do was comfort me. We worked for another few minutes then my husband had called it for me. She is a very smart and hard working companion. At home she did focus, down, and wait just fine.

Hopefully next class I will have it together. This was not on her fault.
