Six word…


(Quest to write posts with numbers in the title to ten.)

This post was supposed to be titled Six Pack Abs Flabs but given no one is much interested in my body mass index or the jelly-like substance surrounding the core of my body, I have passed on the subject matter. Instead, I searched for other intriguing ideas with the number six. All topics left me indifferent or in the spirit of the numbered posts, six of one, half a dozen of the other.

I happened upon the title of my post on Pinterest. It seems there are many authors who have indeed written stories with just six words. I regard myself as a story-teller so I thought how could it be possible to write an entire story with just six words. By the time I start a story, sixty words have already been wasted put to type. In addition, if I am telling the story aloud (for the 6th time) Hubster sometimes falls asleep.

The six-word stories I found have an abundance of themes including heartbreak, grief, love, inspiration, self-worth, and so much more. Six Six Word Stories I enjoyed the most:

Six-Word Memoir: dear older me: don't look back

When I assume, I'm usually right.

Backbone. Wishbone. Funny bone

six word memoirs. … More

I too have written a six-word story although someone else may claim I have plagiarized my text. Indeed, you have heard it before and you may believe it is your own story so I am happy to share it with you.

OMG! My mother was right about everything!

The OMG! takes it over the six-word maximum, but once in a while colorful interjection makes a story much more interesting. Son-sters, take note!

Until we meet again at seven,

    I’m with you. Telling a story in just six words is very tricky. I’m just getting warmed up at 60. And yes, I saw what you did there at the end. Please know I’m eagerly anticipating Seven.

      Hysterical….some of my text messages have received failed to send…I truly believe it is because the text is too long ;).
