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!
Please support the project and the article so that more can join in on the fun!
A new project will be hosted this month, the theme being: 7 Deadly Sins!. The 7 Deadly Sins have been made famous by artists, writers, and filmmakers alike.
"The seven deadly sins provide keys to understanding our faults and the actions that result and a framework for self-knowledge. If we understand how they factor into who we have become, we would understand much more about ourselves and our effect on others." ~ Unknown
The six word story must be newly submitted to deviantART.
The entry must only contain six words and follow our Guidelines.
The Author's Comments must include: SixWordStories's 7 Deadly Sins Project (Or you can copy and paste: :devSixWordStories:' 7 Deadly Sins Project)
Some of the entries we have received appear to be just describing the deadly sin, as opposed to telling a story. We do read through the submissions, and if your submission is not a story, we will not be able to accept it until it is. So please make sure that you are telling a story, not simply making a definition of the sin. Thank you.
Participate in this week's sin theme: Pride.
In almost every list pride is considered the original and most serious of the seven deadly sins, and the source of the others. It is identified as believing that one is essentially better than others, failing to acknowledge the accomplishments of others, and excessive admiration of the personal self.
Deadline for this sin: Monday 4th August, Midnight (pacific time)
How to Submit
Starting July 1st, folders for all sins will be open for submissions. You are allowed to submit your submissions in any order you choose. There will be a journal each week with a new sin to maintain the structure of this project, but this does not mean that you are not allowed to submit your submissions whenever you like. The 'weekly deadlines' are not absolute, they are just there to move the project along from sin to sin. Similarly, you are not required to write stories for all 7 deadly sins. We encourage you to try, but it is not mandatory!
Here are the folders for all 7 deadly sins: Avarice, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Pride, Sloth, Wrath
You do not need to be a member of SixWordStories to enter; it's open to everyone and anyone!
As this is a project, the prizes won't be huge! However, we do have something for the lucky person who writes the best stories for all 7 sins:
A 3 Month Premium Membership

Their best pieces submitted to SixWordStories' Featured folder
