Six Word Story

My friend Mountain Woman at Red Pine Mountain: Live Your Dreams recently challenged her readers to participate in a writing assignment. (Read my short story at Red Pine Mountain.)

I thought I too would ask my readers to join the challenge.
All you need to do is write a short story in six words and post it here for the world to read.

  13. Oh, I'm so glad you did this. I hope you'll stop by again and read all the answers I received. I enjoyed the ones here too. There are so many creative people reading blogs and the range of emotions expressed in such a few words is amazing.

    I have read the many entries on your blog and urge everyone here to do so as well. This was a wonderful activity.

  18. I like Jennifer's story. I think it was Ernest Hemingway who wrote this six-word story:

    For sale: Baby shoes, never worn.

    Tragic. OK, here goes mine...

    Stop it! Get off your brother!

    Oh wait, that's what I just yelled to my son. Well, it's not bad for a six word story.

  20. I thought of another one.

    Why not make a new blog?

    And another:

    Why not, indeed? So I did.
