Six-Word Stories

November 22nd, 2012 · No Comments

by Dwayne Phillips

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.
