Six-Word Stories Vol.2

A while back, I wrote a blog of six-word stories. It seemed to be enjoyable to many people, so I thought I would try another one.

If you’re not familiar with it, a six-word story is exactly as it sounds: It tells a complete story in only six words. This requires some very creative thinking. Many writers can describe a scene in several pages, using flowery descriptors and embellishments, but are you able to tell an emotional, significant story in just a few words? Some of mine have titles and some do not. I would like to hear from you. Can you come up with a good six-word story? Please post in the comments below or create a post of your own and link back to mine. I would love to read them.


Kitten found me; now I’m his.


Fear became my prison without walls.

Seed planted, no water, no growth.


Drove too fast; now I’m “slow.”


Built my walls, brick by brick.


“Moving On”

Sent his mom flowers–no more.


Smiled more; people liked me more.

“Seasons”
New growth, warmth, leaves fall, cold.
