We are going to post something to spark those creative minds, be it a deviation, a quote, a song, or something else completely, and your purpose is to write a six word story. Perhaps the piece will provoke thought, inspire you, or evoke a particular response out of you. Whatever you write, it must be six words only (or rather, original guidelines apply) and you can write whatever you like as long as it is a response to the material we post.

Some Guidelines:

:bulletblue: Please post all six word stories here, in this blog.
:bulletblue: Only one six word story, per person, should be posted.

Last week, six word stories were based on this:

Music is everywhere by Darthko, suggested by LindArtz

There were many, many fantastic stories, but the one we will place is written by FadedPaper



"The world's not quiet here."

Some other awesome stories were:

Emeraldwillow9867 says, "Unsung lines, occupied now by pigeons."

EmoticonAnimations says, "Birds join notes, singing a staff"

sacredZinja says, "Birds in winter, dreaming summer's melody."

This week, we would like you to write a six word story based on this:

Never too far by lostknightkg, suggested by LindArtz

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask us here! Additionally, if you have any suggestions for future material that we can use, send us a note!

Now post those stories here and let's see what you've come up with! :la:

Six Word Stories ICON by Michio11

Welcome to SixWordStories!

A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.

As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!

We will leave you with a thought and conclude this introduction with a well known six word story by Hemingway: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."

What does that tell you?

Curious if this soon-to-be story still technically applies within the rules (since I couldn't find anything pertaining to punctuation being counted as words).

"I am--"
"...Am so."

Do you mind if I ask for some help with promoting a t-shirt design here? The theme was "5 words or less" which is kinda like six word stories... I totally understand if you don't want to, but here's the link anyways:…
Thanks if you do, thanks if you don't!
