Six Word Stories

Okay folks, time to lighten things up a bit. Below are some six word stories that I wrote once upon a time. Never heard of a six word story? Basically, you have to tell a story in exactly six words. Pretty simple. Its not a statement or a quote. Its a story with, if possible, a beginning, middle, and end or at least six words that represent a much larger concept that plays out in the reader's mind. Try one yourself and post it in my comments.

- Open. Scoop. Brew. Pour. Sip. Ahhh.

- Poop. Poop. Scoop. Poop. Poop. Scoop. (for all you cat lovers)

- Stumble. Fall. Forgiven. Repeat as necessary!

- Can I push this button? oops.

- Negative. Negative. Finally two pink lines!

- Order when ready...Pumpkin latte please!

- Gaze. Smile. Touch. Sigh. Tingle. Melt.

- Pine. Velvet. Flowers. Dirt. Goodbye love.

- Fall. Catch. I'll always be there.

- Ouch. Mom. Kiss. Bandaid. Koolaid. Hug.

- Gasp. Beat. Skip. I love you.

- Friendship. Passion. Love. Baby makes three.

- Hang up. No you go first.

- Eyes closed tight. Pony please. Blow.

- And just like that…she vanished.

- Colonel Mustard…caught with murder weapon.

- Will you? Yes. I’d be honored.

- For sale. One water spout. Too rainy.

- Knock knock. Come in. Thanks Peter.

"You hang up"
"No you go first"
"no you"
"We'll go on 3, okay?"

"1, 2, 3"

~ Pause ~

"Ha ha ha"
"Well you didn't hang up either!"

Michelle, ma belle. Où êtes-vous ?

Michelle Hix said...


Je suis ici. Je ne pars pas.

Kat Mortensen said...

Michelle, écrivez moi (ou au téléphone). Est-ce que tout est correct ?
(I'm not fluent - I'm just using Babelfish).

Michelle Hix said...


I'm cracking up...I don't speak french. I'm probably translating this all wrong. Does it say that you want me to write or phone you to tell you if I'm okay? Or does it say to write down my telephone so that you know if you have the correct one? ha ha I know I'm a little absent this week! Just trying to get caught up after vacation.

Kat Mortensen said...

Ha ha! It says: Write to me, or phone. Is everything okay?
Glad to hear that it is. I do plan on calling you soon, it's just we've had some complications with my dad this week.

"Dream, dream, dream and dream again"

Similar to angel, I have never heard of this concept, but will carry it to muse upon from here on. It is such a wonderful thing to give the mind and the soul a little nourishment. Thanks for sharing.

Graham :)
