March Slice of Life No. 4.
Write a story in six words, that’s the task.
Here are a few drafts.
- Thrilled, they screamed themselves into oblivion.
- Twisting and turning, they screamed fearlessly.
- Soaring, twisting, diving upchucked his lunch.
- It rose; it dove, then failed.
- Their first shouldn’t’ve been their last.
Writing about my writing
My friend shared this photo on social media this morning. I used it as my prompt.
Tomorrow, I will share more about writing six-word stories. You don’t want to miss it.
If you thought of a six-word story for this prompt
or a revision for one of mine,
I’d love for you to share it.
Plunge to death, felling so alive!
I love how your post gets other bloggers to write more! So clever!
I’ve taken leave of my senses!
Abandon hope, all ye who ride!
This is so strange to me. I was thinking about writing a collection of six word stores as a slice but hadn’t put it together in my mind yet! Such inspiration and the prompt is great! “Stomach is in my throat, exciting!” I’m excited to see what you share about this tomorrow!
My favourite part of all of this is “Shouldn’t’ve” as one word. I cannot wait to share this with my boys to show them how to use apostrophes. Also, “that picture makes my stomach hurt” – 6 words
Glad you noticed “shouldn’t’ve.” I go limp looking at that picture.
Absolute terror followed by absolute ecstasy!
What was I thinking? Crazy idea.
My students loved doing these six word stories. Really mad them think.
I love this format! I also appreciate that you’ve tried it a few different ways and shared each of them. Feels like joyful, playful, experimental writing. I’m totally inspired to try it. PS-That picture made my stomach flip!
Mine too! Be sure to come by tomorrow for more details.
My six word reply:
I can’t look never mind ride!
At the top, he wondered, “Why?” / I had forgotten about six-word stories; thanks for the fun prompt today!
Crazy to get on that thing!
Lost the ability to breathe. Yeeeesssssssss!!
