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

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: 6/21

When I think of pioneer my first thought is of the TV show, ‘Little House on the Prairie.’ Now that I’m older I realized that we are all pioneers in our lives. We may not discover new lands, stake land, or brave the wild tundra but we still discover newness within ourselves and what we can accomplish.

Prompt Word: Pioneer girl

Dreaming is what has gotten me through a lot and has helped me achieve more than what I was dreaming about. If it wasn’t for dreamers there would be so much not in our lives, no goals achieved, no art, no color or life.

Prompt Word: Dreamer


6 Word Story: 6/19

What an absolutely frustrating morning. Last night we had storms that came through and knocked out the electric. Woke up, the electric is back on but I don’t have time to paint. Got ready for my walk and it’s still pouring! Tell you the truth a little panic set it. I cheated and did a sneak peek on the scale before the walk that never happened and I’m down to 189lbs! So, I will have to walk tonight which means a quick dinner and a battle with the humidity. Add the BS spam comment this morning, I’m not giving up but feeling overwhelmed and out of place.  It’s going to be a late night tonight.

I looked up today’s prompt and the first few searches were about a superhero character. Then I was reminded of a character in the movie, ‘The Mists of Avalon’ (the history behind this movie is a little dark) and the scene of a ritual. By definition, it’s a female that hunts game OR a female animal that hunts prey. This was a hard one as I’m trying to bring positive words and vibes and save all the spooky stuff for October.

Prompt Word: The Huntress



6 Word Story: 6/18

I think today’s prompt should have been combined with yesterday’s. Now, the ONLY thing that I can connect this to is the court, crime, and the law. I understand where this would have to do with courage but how to turn this into something positive? Under Oath doesn’t mean something pleasant happened but the exact opposite. When seeking justice, you are often left with the law. Not my favorite prompt.

Prompt Word: Under Oath


6 Word Story: 6/17

This was another difficult prompt for me to wrap my head around. This month on Page Flutter the theme is Courage and it just doesn’t seem to fit with the prompt. I’ll try and make a connection but all I can think about is a crime mystery.

Prompt Word: On the Scene

6 Word Story: 6/16

My sliced nail bed is becoming more troublesome than I thought it could be. Typing with one hand feels foreign. I feel like a gorilla banging on the keyboard with her feet! It’s frustrating, to say the least. I have some chores and errands that need to be completed today in preparation for Father’s day tomorrow.

After everything is set up, I’m going to paint come hell or high water.

Something that I have come to learn is that there are always these invisible front lines that we have to protect or to cross to conquer something. The fact is, we have our own victories that no one else sees and sometimes we don’t acknowledge until after the fact. It could be getting out of bed and taking that shower to completing a marathon. Our front lines have their own stories and victories. Be proud.

Prompt Word: Front Line

6 Word Story: 6/14

I would have never thought a year ago I would be where I am with writing and painting. I have stumbled along the way but I have bigger ideas that I will work hard to complete. Or at least come close.

Prompt Word: The Visionary

6 Word Story: 6/13

Sometimes all you can do is be alone in a situation. And you know what? That’s ok. Sometimes it needs to happen that way so you are able to find yourself, strength, or courage.

Prompt Word: Lone Warrior

6 Word Story: 6/12

Today’s prompt is something I think that we have all feared and welcomed at least once in our life. Some are for the good, some are for the bad, but both good and bad are needed for balance.

Prompt Word: Changes



6 Word Story: 6/9

Today’s prompt can refer to many different things or something someone may do in a situation to calm individuals but then there is the time when you are your own peacemaker. Your own advocate. This could be cutting someone out of your life, learning to love yourself, or actually taking the time to care for your own well being. Now I’m facing a difficult situation and one of the remedies could possibly take my passion away. I’ll still post my doodle prompt creation but I don’t know about much else. Hell, I’m even late with my 6-words. Here’s to hoping for a better day (mentally and physically).

Prompt Word: Peacemaker



6 Word Story: 6/8

I have had this happen myself a time or two and often wonder if this umbrellas public speaking? Now that I’ve gotten a little older I’ve gotten a little better about speaking out.

Prompt Word: Stage Fright


6 Word Story: 6/7

There are times that I wish that I was in a new place even a different time but I have to make the best out of what and where I am. Today is weigh-in day, yesterday was awful, and I’m not looking forward to dinner with a friend. I’m going to try and turn things around. Try…

Prompt Word: New Kid


6 Word Story: 6/6

I’m not sure what today’s prompt has to do with the courage theme. I looked up the definition and pictures and still not feeling the prompt. But what if be your true self without practicing an act?

Prompt: Showman
