6 word stories

Following the mighty footsteps of Ernest Hemingway who wrote a story with six words for a bet worth ten dollars (the story is found here) , I have put my writing skills to the test. I have written ten stories with six words,some of them an inspiration from a movie, since unlike Hemingway my life hasn’t been that dramatic. Enjoy!

  1. He cheated. She won the lottery. 
  2. A wedding. “Bridal march” never played.
  3. He died. She could see him.
  4. His leg snapped. Best selling book.
  5. After years of waiting, “I do.”
  6. Years of writing. Pen finally breaks.
  7. Unsinkable ship. Love frozen in time.
  8. The basketball player. Rejected by bookworm.
  9. She loves him. He loves Luke.
  10. A funeral. Five wives. Eighteen children.

  10. That is a fun concept. Number nine made me laugh.

  11. Great idea. My husband writes, I'll have to suggest this to him.

  13. I'm still laughing at #1. He cheated, she won the lottery. What irony!

  14. What a fun activity. This would be great to do with my kids who are still in school.

  15. That is so clever not sure I would be able to do just 6 words though I seem to have trouble keeping things short! x

  16. I remember reading about the short story in my Lit class in college. I love that you gave it a try and came up with some really cool "stories" yourself. You could make sequels on some of those! LOL!

  23. Oh wow this seems challenging but I love writing and using my creativity. I&#39;ve never heard of a 6 word story before. Pretty cool. I recognized one of them from a movie, that was neat. I bet it would be a lot of fun to try and describe movies with 6 words too. Something tells me I&#39;ll be mentally doing this today 🙂
