Six Word Story Contest

I would like to resurrect the six word story contest. For those not familiar, refer to this post. Same rules apply. And to spice it up, I'll throw in a prize for the winner, since it is a contest. You have until...hmmm...Christmas? New Years? to write your stories, then we'll vote. All in favor write a six word story.

Chimp attack. No more face.

Kirsten said...

Can the stories be about anything?

Sarachel said...

Jami's story is short, and yes.

Sarachel said...

Warm covers. Cold morning. Sleep in.

Shani said...

"Drugs were not his first choice."

Shani said...

"Fancy dress. Awkward dinner. Little dancing."

(My creative writing teacher actually introduced us to these this semester, so I've written a few of them.)

Leanna said...

Feeling kicks in tummy. My secret.

Leanna said...

Out of diapers. Hazel just pooped.

Jami said...

I noticed after I posted it.

Jami said...

Pregnancy test negative: breath of relief.

Sarachel said...

I thought about him again today.

Sarachel said...

I never get sick. Except lately.

Kirsten said...

Slushy snow. I need hot chocolate.

Sarachel said...

I jammed my finger today. Ouch.

Emily Goodsell said...

First they cheated. Then they failed.

(Oh, the life of a teacher.)

Jami said...

Hate mail. Why do I teach?

Julie M said...

Parent-teacher conferences- glimpses of hell.

Julie M said...

Broken glasses. Couldn't see the train.

Julie M said...

Thanks for your manuscript, but no.

Chan said...

Proper wampum prospers in the bay.

That's nonsense, not a story. But it has six words.

Skyler, et al, please appreciate this next six word story to beat all six word stories:

Abode House.

Here's one lifted from John Mellencamp (a Hoosier, thankyouverymuch...that means he's from Indiana):

I fight authority; authority always wins.

Sharon Morgan. Beaver. Gun safety-lock key.

Here's another cheater that counts a hyphenated term as one word:

Phone call. Confession cornucopia. Mutual freak-out.

Sarachel said...

"Abode House" is less than six words. It doesn't count, Chan.



Ha ha, Chan is a loser.

(just kidding)

Skyler said...

My six word rebuttal as to why Chan's still wins:

See, but it's still the best.

Sarachel said...

We haven't voted, so no one wins yet.

Sarachel said...

Master's Thesis: I'm going to die.

karli said...

Tearful night. Comforting shoulder. Good friend.

(This next one is for you, skyler.)

Fireworks on the pond. Angry ducks.

No work. Doctor visit. Strep again?

Piles of novels, yet no bookshelf.

karli said...

It's time to hop a train.

Chan, question: Are all residents from Indiana Hoosiers? Or just basketball players?

Either way

My grandpa is an Indiana Hoosier.

(six word story)

Skyler said...

So, I just thought of a great advertisement for the guys at the Center--except the married ones. Well, maybe the married ones too. Anyway:

Writing Center: Guys trained to listen.

Shani said...

Sis. Morgan wins with guy's ad.

At least, she wins for me.

Even if we haven't finished yet.

Julie M said...

What, pray, is the Abode House?

Sky said...

Shani, Skyler's "ad." But I AGREE.

Britt said...

I am not participating in this.

Sky said...

Silly. Too late. You did participate.

Shani said...

Saw "Sky" and mistook person. Oops.

Sky said...

So many good ones, Sara Lee, but my vote goes to Skyler's "Writing Center: Guys trained to listen." Profound. And Jami's no-nonsense cynicism that made me laugh. "Chimp attack. No more face." Ha. And the smash in Julie's "Broken Glasses, couldn't see the train."

Sarachel said...

Well, if we want to end the contest now, I vote for Skyler, too.

Whaddaya say? Anymore entries? or should we just move on to the haiku?
