Story; Six Sentences (in length) -the Wakefield Doctrine-

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

This is zoe’s bloghop ‘Six Sentence Story‘.

She invites all to participate and write words and stuff.

You know, words in a sequence that result in (a) Reader picturing, imagining and/or feeling something (ideally related to the sequence of words).

Come on! Whatcha got to lose?


By the secret rules that govern the land of the near-awake, the sound assumed a place, a role, if you would, in the man’s dream; it was a dream that, up until this point, that had been thoroughly un-remarkable.

However, not content to be a mere ‘walk-on character’ (in an admittedly) mediocre play, the sound grew in volume; a shout becoming a roar, the roar, finding no resistance above, dove into the earth and there, became huge.

Unfortunately for our dreamer, a sound that grows in volume, in the absence of understanding it’s cause (and therefore, it’s location), signifies the approach of a threat.

The rest of the man’s dream became irrelevant, now a story with a much simpler a plot: to escape.

Just before the sound had grown so large (and threatening) as to tear itself free from its placenta of non-knowability, it’s origin was established… on the street that ran past the man’s house.

Winter started, with both a roar and a whimper.

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


  1. UP says:

    Good stuff!

  2. Having been rudely awakened by storms before, i find this realistic and a bit chilling.

  3. Some are definitely finding winter a nightmare already. A fun delivery sirs.

      fortunately, I am one of those who holds that winter ended on 12/21/17 and with each day since, that sun remains above a little longer, aka summer!

  4. phyllis says:

    Nice winter story.

  5. With the weather you are having in the US this story is very apt. It is also true that dreams can be complicated up until the time they become nightmares and then all you do want to do is escape. Good one.

      yeah, that thing about how the mind, insisting that it is left allow to sleep will incorporate outside disturbance into the ‘plot’ is remarkable…. ‘hey! what noise! no need to wake up!’

  6. I haven’t seen a proper winter for years. Down here on the south coast winter is like summer but with grey skys instead of blue and lower temperatures. Boring actually.

      trade ‘ja lol no, seriously, I’d go for the grey and cool over the bright and frickin freezin any day!

  7. I see you didn’t approve my comment…I must’ve written it in another timeline! lol (swear, I was the first to comment yesterday) :D
