Six Word Stories

Succinct, brief, illuminating.

Most of us who start clacking away on the keyboard are none of the above.

Thus the challenge of Six Word Stories.

According to their About page:

“Brevity is a virtue.

This is a collection of short short stories consisting of just six words. It was inspired by Ernest Hemingway’s famous challenge.”

My first submission =

“Ran. Fell. Cried. Dried. Ran. Forward.”

It’s not necessarily the great American novel, but at least I finished this one.

Brevity … hmmm … I may have to try it more often.
