Six Sentence Story -the Wakefield Doctrine-

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


My Favorite Skip photo (courtesy of Skip’s very fortunate human)

Here it is, Wednesday evening and I’m frantically searching for the Six idea I had this morning; and it’s nowhere to be found.

Funny thing, I started my warm-up post around 8:30 this morning, which, granted was a bit on the early side, but I had the seed of an idea for this week’s Six Sentence Story. The prompt word is ‘SKIP’, I had an opening line and it would be about/related to time travel.

But then, for reasons unknown, I ended up publishing a post about the recent July 4th holiday. Good thought, but no, I looked there first.

Oh, well, skip it.

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 hate it when an idea comes to your head and then vanishes. Good job though

  2. An excellent 6 today.
    (my favorite too!)

    You did a great job under the circumstances!

  4. Wonderful way to deal with dilemma of the missing story starter! I tend to make notes on my phone at night, and have been known to somehow misplace or delete them in the morning. I never recover as well as you have here, well done! I was tempted to “skip it” today too, had an idea but it took me ’til afternoon to finally string the words together in readable fashion. I think it worked out ok.

      Its funny about warm ups and actual writing. The warm up’s primary value (for me) is to eliminate the ’empty white page’ and thereby reducing the temptation to feel pressure. It’s good to realize that theres practical value to it as well… lol

    Despite all that you completed the task admirably. I am sure you will be welcome next week too as you didn’t skip a week.

      yeah, I know! that,. ‘don’t miss one’ effect, lol It’s so much easier to write when its established (within), ‘that I always write one’…

    Well, at least, you have the word down and a picture of the original Skip, or at least its back view.
