Six on the Sixth – February 2016

They Call Him Goblin (goblin)

The women hate his beady eyes.


Just Tell ‘Em Where (spit)

They’d eagerly spit on his grave.


Self-Loathing (shine)

Turds were never meant to shine.


Belittle Me This (belittle)

Eventually, he snaps back at them.


Slack-jawed (gape)

Their egos shatter under his words.


Licking Their Wounds (maintenance)

They offer only half-hearted, insincere apologies.


Written for Six on the Sixth. Jump in and join the fun if you’re up for the challenge.



Six on the Sixth Prompt – Feb 2016

6on6It’s that time of the month again! No not that time!

It’s time for some six word stories! Currently there isn’t a huge following, but hopefully as time passes more and more writers around the world will be contributing to this little exercise in creativity.

This post will act as the prompt for tomorrow’s event. I say tomorrow because that’s when I’ll be posting my stories, but feel free to be flexible with the day on which you post yours.

The idea is to write anywhere from one to ten six word stories. I usually go with six of them, just to keep the six theme rolling.

I’ve decided to do away with the inlinkz linkup until we gain some more followers. We’re going to do it old school instead. Just post a link to your stories in the comments of mine (and any others that you read).

To be clear, as the stories are so short, it is NOT MANDATORY that you use the prompt words. Be inspired by as many or as few as you see fit. Most of all, have fun! That being said, the following random words are this month’s prompts:







Creative Endeavors

So I’ve been neglecting my writing this week because I’ve been focusing most of my creative juices into a different form of expression: sculpture. I’ve only ever sculpted once before and the clay I was using sucked so I didn’t get too detailed with it. The process is slow going as I have no experience and I’m just figuring things out as I go, but so far I’m liking the results. There is a long way to go yet, but I figured I’d share my progress.


This is the general idea behind the current sculpt. I’ve got a few little books where I draw a bunch of pictures like this. I draw them for character ideas, sculpture ideas (I’ve wanted to get into it for awhile but just haven’t had time) or just for plain fun.


I went to Hobby Lobby and got a foam head and some clay, then built a base for my foam head from some scrap wood I had.


The next step was to rough out the head. This is where I was when I got to the end of my 1st 4.5 lb block of clay. 40% off coupons are awesome by the way, I highly suggest using them. I covered the front of the foam head with clay and roughed out half the face based on my drawing.


So I went back to Hobby Lobby to get more clay but they didn’t have any more 4.5 lb blocks in the right color so I grabbed two 1 lb blocks to hold me over. Those extra 2 lbs allowed me to rough out the other half of the face and add one of the roughed out ears.


I went back a couple days later (which happened to be on my birthday) after I got a haircut (which is in the same shopping plaza as Hobby Lobby, so I was already there anyway) hoping they had some more 4.5 lb blocks in stock. Turns out they did so I snagged one (with 40% off coupon of course). I roughed out the other ear and adjusted the bone structure of the circles on forehead. They were too high before so I ripped them off and moved them down. I also covered the back of the head and in this photo I had just started to rough out one of the eyes.


This is where I currently stand. I added more detail to the eyes, the brows, the mouth, and one of the ears. My hands hurt so I’m done for now. I still have about 2 lbs of clay left but I want to pick up another 4.5 lb block so I can rough out the neck. This stuff never dries out because it’s oil based so I can reuse it to my heart’s content as long as I keep it clean so I shouldn’t have to keep going back to buy more clay for the next sculpt. But that’s a future discussion. There is still a ton of work to do on this guy so I’ll worry about that later.

If you’re wondering I’ve been calling this little goblin Luka. That’s all I really know about him so far. He hasn’t told me his back story yet.
