Up (Jane Doe Six Sentence Stories)

“I don’t care what the alarm says; it’s warm in here and I’m not getting up.”

“But Self, you actually have a job interview today–it’s your up, take your swing and make it count!”

“I don’t think I’m up for this.”

“Life can’t be down all the time, there’s gotta be an up coming.”

“My get-up-and-go seems to have upped and left me.”

“Get. UP.”


I dunno, peeps, that sounded better in my head. I’ve not been up for writing much lately; been kinda down. But I’m trying! This week’s Six Sentence Stories flash fiction blog hop and link-up is hosted, as always, by Girlie on the Edge. This week’s cue (in case it wasn’t obvious) was UP.

I like trees, dreaming, magic, books, paper, floating, dreaming, rhinos, rocks, stargazing, wine, dragonflies, trains, and silence to hear the world breathe.

  1. I went down the same rhetorical path (or would that be literal path…. or maybe littered path*)
    on this weeks prompt.
    Wish you hadn’t said anything about really wanting to get back into writing**
    Have I got an offer for you!
    I have this flash serial story thing going, ‘Interlude’. Its a time travel thing (sorta) so we have two contexts and only a couple of well-defined characters (well, I think they’re well defined, me being one of them… long amusing story behind that).
    Anyway. Let me know and I’ll send over the passkey to the place and you can either ‘put on one the existing characters’ or do a ‘walk on’.
    It’ll be fun!

    *now that is reaching, in a clumsy but, nevertheless persistent way… lol
    ** well, thats the subtext I read… I read words real good and I’m sure thats what was there…
