Usually my writing is dark, but every so often, it is tragic. This week’s entry for the six sentence story word of DETOUR by girlontheedge is definitely dark below the surface. Not much is said directly, but a lot is implied. If you have triggers, read the tags before reading, this one is a bumpy … Continue reading Highway to Hell
This weeks six-sentence story is a little sad, and surprisingly mundane. Based on the six-sentence story prompt of Confetti from Girlontheedge, this is the story of someone who has come to the realization that there is a little more to her projects being behind, and having to make a choice what in her life is … Continue reading Shredded
I have to start with May the 4th be with you! This week’s six sentence story prompt by girlontheedge was CONTROL, and it got weird. What started with a perfectionist researcher being interrupted turned a little strange, and well it’s up to you if you want to interpret this as horror/fantasy or take it as … Continue reading The Perfectionist

I will say that its dark, and a lot of things are implied, but nothing stated outright. Really just a single bad … Continue reading Ephemeral Experiences
This was inspired by the six-sentence story prompt by girlontheedge. This weeks prompt was board, and I took that in the message board style. A woman quickly learns the internet is both forever and full of idiots in this twisted little story. She did not want to get out of bed this morning, as she … Continue reading Abysmal Interactions
This weeks six based on the word RHYTHM is the story of a man on the way somewhere important (maybe a job interview), and not having a great time of it. Despite the tone, this one isn’t based on experience, as strangely the huge moments almost never give me anxiety… Also the title is based … Continue reading Panic Attack
