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:

Got You TRICK OR TREAT by ScarletQuill

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

"Harry's not on our team?"

Some other awesome stories were:

LindArtz's "Called exterminator; need magic for this!"

Amarantheans's "Must swat the snitch, blasted pests!"

meowclopspurrcat's "Head earthbound, but swatting the stars."

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

Coffee, Tea or Sushi?! by ScarletQuill

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:

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?

Someday I want to start my own podcast. That is a lovely ambition to be sure, but why am I telling you, Internet? Simple. I'm addressing the writers in the void. I want to practise with reading aloud poetry. One a week from one of you guys, one from a Biggie (like great poets, not Mr. Smalls) and then a Les Mis fanfic on the weekend. So, if you have poetry you want read aloud. Contact me with a name and i n the video I'll make sure to send a link to your DA or any more if you supply them.

:shamrock: "Coming in to apologize for not posting lately. Just recovering from a nasty cold and virus. That, and, my head is not well when writer's block kicks in. I promise I will post my six word stories in when I get the thoughts to stop being rusted up." :shamrock: :)
