Keep Your Distance #It’s Six-Sentence Story Link-Up

Image contains: Abbie, smiling.

One scary thing about the coronavirus is that you could be carrying it and not even know. Thus, you could inadvertently pass it on to someone else. This is why I can’t stress enough the importance of keeping our social distance during this time. I spent Christmas alone, and although it was hard, the wonderful feeling that I was doing my part to keep others from catching this dreadful disease surpassed the joy of being with my family. So, let’s all ring in the new year by staying home and know that this virus won’t last. May 2021 be a better year.


Thanks to Girlie on the Edge for inspiring this week’s post. The idea is to write a story or poem of no more and no less than six sentences, using the prompt word “distance” at least once. Click here to learn how you can participate in her blog hop.

By the way, for those of you who use the National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled, The Red Dress is available for download from their site here. No matter how you read it, please be sure to review it wherever you can. That goes for all my books. Thank you for stopping by. Stay safe, happy, and healthy.


New! The Red Dress

Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books

Front cover contains: young, dark-haired woman in red dress holding flowers

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.

Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.

  1. Here is one more who totally heeds keeping a distance and wearing a mask. My husband and I have celebrated the holidays just by ourselves because we felt that was the safest and most sensible thing to do given the circumstances. Good reminder in your SSS.

      1. I hope the New Year is exciting and productive for you Abbie. It is already taking off like a rocket here at River Road Studio. On Sunday I published the Week in Photos – and thanks for visiting and hitting the LIKE button. I thought folks would like a personal tour of my fiber studio – and a peek at the beginning of a series of works I am doing for 2021. While our New Year’s Ever was quiet – that was normal for us. A quiet beginning for a very wonderful new year – to all.
