Six-word Story Contest

siglo15 posted this thread...
Jun. 13, 2012 at 8:13 pm

It's possible to tell stories in six words. For instance: "Gunshots screams. Police sirens. Too late." or here's one I found on the internet "Rain. Two strangers. One umbrella. Love."

So, I'm challenging you to make up your own six-word stories. I'll read them and the winners will be posted June 22.

1st Place Prize - I will read, rate, and give you feed-back on three of your piece.

2nd Place Prize - I will read, rate, and give you feed-back on two of your pieces.

3rd Place Prize - I will read, rate, and give you feed-back on one of your pieces.

If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Happy writing! :D

Might as well try...

 

Aim. Look. Aim again. Breathe. Shoot.

 

Fall. Stand. Trip. Fall. Run. Home.

 

Ball. Shot. Dive. Pain. Roll. Save.

Crap. Those didn't space out right.
Oh well. I will try again.
Move closer. He moves too. Intertwined.
The ring fits. I love you.
I scream. He bleeds. She laughs.
Love fails. But death is forever.
Life sucks. Then you die. Yippee.
That was fun. I wrote lots.

I should stop this. Too late.

Accuse. Scream. Cry. Dream. Rinse. Repeat.

 

Far too old, too many souvenirs.

 

Have you got a moment, ma'am?

This is my first time doing this. Here are mine.

"Knife in back. Return to sender."                                               

"I’m wrong. Everyone's dead. I’m right."

"One war. Many guns. Many choices."

Hung myself. Brother found me. Alive.

Monsters under bed remain, just changed.

Laughed at all the wrong moments

I lied so you wouldn't worry.

The razor never loved me back.

God abandoned me. So I reciprocated.

Pacing behind bars. Real killer vanished.

 

 

 

He slapped her. She kissed him.

 

 

I never saw Grandpa so peaceful.

Why does dreaming take you away?

 

I want to be heard outside.

 

"I think you're cute...kiss me?"

 

That's when she learned; everyone leaves.

 

Hearing the lie; knowing the truth.

 

"I think...we should start over."

 

And so he never hoped again.
