It’s that time of the month again! No not that time!
It’s time for some six word stories! Currently there isn’t a huge following, but hopefully as time passes more and more writers around the world will be contributing to this little exercise in creativity.
This post will act as the prompt for tomorrow’s event. I say tomorrow because that’s when I’ll be posting my stories, but feel free to be flexible with the day on which you post yours. The linkup will be open all month.
The idea is to write anywhere from one to ten six word stories. I usually go with six of them, just to keep the six theme rolling.
To be clear, as the stories are so short, it is NOT MANDATORY that you use the prompt words. These are to help out anyone who wishes to try their hand but are stuck for ideas.
That being said, the following random words are this month’s prompts: (Use as many or as few as you like)
The linkup is currently active and you are free to post your links to it at any time.

Exactly what does this mean? Is it a story of any length, where the author is expected to use those six words or what? I can’ t imagine writing a story of only six words

This means stories of exactly six words inspired by (not necessarily using) these prompt words. A Sox word story often leaves a lot to the imagination and doesn’t always work, but it’s a fun little exercise regardless.
