I try to write a few six-word stories and learn a few things.
I have heard about six-word stories and stories written with only a few words. Okay, enough thinking and waiting; here are a few attempts.
- The window broke; I jumped out.
- I woke, he died, me too.
- The grandchildren visited. My pains disappeared.
- I ate fruits and vegetables undying.
- Tight shoes caused frequent migraine headaches.
I had to search for words that carried more meaning. That was a good exercise.
I wrote five stories in two minutes. That is some sort of prolific record for me.
This wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be.
I was searching for a beginning, middle, and end.
This was a learning exercise, and that is a good thing.
