Today’s prompt is about 6 word stories.
Welcome to Sunday.
Write a six-word story complete with a beginning, middle, and end. Classic example from Hemingway: “Baby shoes for sale. Never worn.” Suggested prompt word: May. Could be the month, a person, a permission request, a game (e.g. Mother May I?). Or use another word. Bonus points if every word starts with the same letter.
I have used this prompt for years for myself and my students. It can be used as a reading exercise as well. It is also good for titles in my opinion.
Here are some:
Every time you ask, I’m suspicious.
It must be the full moon.
Knight in shining armour failed me.
Peace comes in a wine glass.
Walking and crying: how to be.
I find myself thinking in 6 word sentences today. My brain sees the pattern and won’t let go.
