Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers)
Our friend zoe’s weekly challenge to create a Story centered on one prompt word, but entailing no more than six sentences. Easy enough, no?
No. Not easy enough. Not even insufficiently easy. And, defiantly not easy as can be… (sorry, I couldn’t keep it going. I knew that there should have been an extension of the analogy (or allegory or antonym) … but it vanished from my mind, like…. like damn! there go the fricken similes!!)
I enjoy this exercise. Most of the time. I’m given to the odd and (hopefully) weirdly suggestive. However, this week my goal shall be simple, direct and action driven Six Sentence Story. The prompt word is: Draw
(Wish me luck)
“You have your instructions. As implied by the name, there are to be six sentences. Without restriction on the length of these six individual sentences, long or short, they, obviously, must contribute to the story in a way as to keep the Reader engaged, promising to deliver the ‘payoff’, by the end (of the sentence) if not, sooner.
And a Title, which may (or might not) contain the prompt word. As simple as this is, you couldn’t resist, could you?
You want, I should draw you a picture?”
