six sentence story -the Wakefield Doctrine-

Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers)


No way! I’d rather have writers block that to try to figure out how to arrange the letters of the words (and the words) in such a way as to resemble a block which is, of course this week’s prompt word. Hey… how about a cube? (Sure, cool idea… but too much of typing then looking to see how it looks, then try something and then move it back and try again… like that… hey maybe there’s an app!)

No!  No help, there were a number of applications and sites that promised to provide a way to put text into shapes, but they were, for the most part, written by rogers for rogers. Guess I’m gonna have to come up with a Six Sentence Story, the old-fashioned way,  type until something happens!

This is, of course, zoe’s Thursday exercise in creative writing, the Six Sentence Story bloghop, where we are invited to write a story that is six (and only six) sentences in length. Easy? “ho ho ho mon ami,” this Six is as easy as …as easy as…. wait a darn minute! Did I just telegraph this week’s prompt word?


[insert Title here]

“Are you still in there,” the man’s …. wife, ….. on the ….door, asked, … .

“Yeah, I have to do this,” he said…. for what he knew was… despite all that he …himself.

With a … sense of… the man stared at the screen, which he had …. with… all while realizing that…. for the….time… again.

“Listen to me, you know that I … you and we can …together, but the last time this happened, you promised that you would …. no matter how …. it seemed and I told you then that I … and …. and we laughed and you said, ‘If you … then there’d be no way I could … at least not and still’ ….” he felt the … feeling of …. .

He heard her …voice of his  … and knew that she spoke the … and felt a … feeling and suddenly…. .

Well, what exactly do you want to know? Whether I am a clark or a scott or roger? If you have to ask, then you need to keep reading the Posts for two reasons: a)to get a clear enough understanding to be able to make the determination of which type I am and 2) to realize that by definition I am all three.* *which is true for you as well, all three...but mostly one

    I am so lost sorry. I’m sure it’s me. The worst part is knowing that I’m going to be embarrassed later for admitting it.

      nope, when the reader misses the point, the author is responsible!
      I’ll cop to a failed experiment plea… lol
      my thought (in the writing) of this week’s six sentence story was, ‘suppose I had writers block, but wrote anyway’
      … ha, ha?

    Having blocked the words out we must fill them in for ourselves. There should be a prize for that!

    My first thought was that it was all someone could hear who was eavesdropping, then I wondered it might be writer’s block

      exactly (the second)… I like the idea, but I realize that when getting this weird, I need to provide a setup that is clearer without being obvious. imo, the Reader should not have to have to figure out what I intend with a story… no, when it comes to what I mean, that’s different! lol
