Clip – Six Sentence Story

Colorful Tree in the Distance

Joan was worried when she heard them clip phrases from her testimony before broadcasting it through their propaganda machines. That they got away with those distortions made her think the coup couldn’t be stopped.

However, Joan’s whistleblowing was the key to evidence that was now being confirmed. She couldn’t see what was happening, but then she didn’t need to. She only had to do her part which she did, and did well.

The republic successfully took it from there.


Linked to Six Sentence Story where Denise offers the prompt word “clip” to be used somewhere in a story of six sentences.

  1. She did what was right. And this is exactly the reason a man i know refuses all interviews with the press unless they agree he can record them himself as well. When he lays out that condition, they generally withdraw the request, which is quite telling.

  2. one of life’s not-common, but unforgettable experiences, being quoted (or, perhaps, to the point, mis-quoted)… had it happen only a couple of times, (early in my real estate career)… to read what you know were your words, but not your intent.
    good Six!

  3. Having been misquoted more than once by our local paper, I can understand Joan’s worry, especially over something as important as overthrowing a government! Great six!
