Six Sentence Stories - Investigate

This blog hop prompt was a personal challenge to see if it was possible for me to write a six sentence story without lengthening the sentences like this one. Denise of Girlie on the Edge didn't urge me to tackle my personal challenge, but she did provide the cue, Six Sentence Stories - Investigate. Click the link and see what other bloggers are sharing this time. You will find an assortment of writing styles. You can almost count on that.  


The tracks were confusing to say the least.

Impressions were left by a sure-footed being.

Maybe she went west, or did she go east?

Could it be that one leg torqued while she was fleeing?

There was no sign of her being released.

He must investigate this clue he was seeing.

    1. Sometimes with the SSS I tend to ramble on in order to get the story out there. I have nothing against writing or reading stories written that way, but I wanted to challenge myself to try something different.

    1. I had "sure-footed beast" at first, but then changed it to "being" to rhyme with "fleeing."
      Trying to imagine a beast wearing shoes was a little difficult to imagine, unless I borrow one from Grimm. LOL

  4. This is fantastic, Pat. I toyed with the idea of a poem. What an interesting and inspiring photo.

    Not a poetry guy but there is such a compelling element of rhythm when done properly and, in this case, a most effect Six!

    1. Thanks, Clark. Although I know that rhyming poetry isn't written as often as it used to be, I still enjoy writing it once in a while.
