Six Word Story September

September 18, 2017


How many words do you think it takes to tell a story? With the right words, you only need a few.

Ernest Hemingway is attributed with creating the famous six word story: For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn.

I first came across this micro-story in a creative writing class I took in undergrad, and it's stuck with me ever since. Even after all these years, it still makes me a bit sad. All from six words.

I wanted to challenge myself to come up with a few stories of my own. Let me know what you think:


Ate gas station sushi... still sick.

I wished I never clocked in.

Bought a Powerball ticket. Millions richer!

Oops, ran that light! Crap... police.

Love you, but I can't stay.

She was a bald-headed survivor.

I'm normally pretty concise in my writing, but a six word limit was a challenge! I'd much prefer taking a six word prompt and elaborating, but this is a great way to get creative.

It's your turn... and you can win a prize for it! Submit a six word story on my Facebook page to be entered into a giveaway for a $25 Amazon gift card. Get an extra entry for sharing the Facebook post.


The winner will be randomly selected on October 1st.
