Have you heard of the website Six Word Stories? Six Word Stories challenges you to tell a story in just six words. Easy enough.
According the the website, the idea of Six Word Stories is based on a bet Ernest Hemingway made with friends. You see, Ernest’s colleagues bet him he couldn’t write a complete story in just six words.
Hemingway came up with this- “For sale: baby’s shoes, never worn.”
Since the theme of my whole crazy journey is GIVING, I wanted to see if I could tell a six word story in which I was the recipient of someone's generosity.
Four of my six word stories:
Nurse Ashley, a green bear…hope.
Believing in dreams when I don’t.
Stopping at exit nine to help.
“You are my queen to me.”
Oh, I want to tell you the full length stories that go along with each, but I guess that's more than six words.
What do you think? Can you tell your story of generosity in just six words? Come on now you writers out there, give it a try!
