Prompt Guidelines

One six word story, per person, per prompt.

The duration of the prompt is subject to change.

The story must include the object/animal/plant/etc., either explicitly or implicitly, as a part of the progression, which means general comparison or description is not recommended.

The theme is open as long as the prompt is mentioned in the story - again, not necessarily directly.

All pieces must follow the universal Guidelines.

The Author's Comments should contain:
SixWordStories' The Thing: (PROMPT)

The winner for "Doorbell" was:

Ding DongShhh! Don't let the vampires in!

They have received 20:points: for being this week's winner.

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."
