Six-Word Stories

These are addictive. I challenge each and every one of you to write a story consisting of six words. Here are some websites that have Six-word stories:

And here is a link to my post on The Write Practice about Six-Word Stories! :D

Here are some of my own Six-Word stories:

There’s a dog that is crazy. (Inspired by my dog, Scout).
I am stuck. No words come.
Flower. No water, no sun. Dead.  
Fire crackles. Baby cries. No answer.  
Wails fill the house with sorrow.  
We are never getting back together. (Inspired by Taylor Swift's "We are Never Ever Getting Back Together").
Time slows down whenever you're around. (Inspired by Taylor Swift's "Today Was a Fairytale").

Here are some six word stories I like:
For sale: Baby shoes. Never worn.
Logged out. Pulled plug. Found life.
Happiness came in furry little bunnies.

I now challenge all of you to write three Six-Word stories and post them in a comment. Have fun! :D

(More gratitude posts to come once I get pictures).

I agree with Daddy. I am always impressed with what you come up with for your monthly posts - way to go!

Okay, 3 stories, eh? I'm up for the challenge.

1. Stayed up late. So tired today.

2. Girl offended. Big scene. Dynamic changes.

3. Pleasant dreams. Startling alarm. Hit snooze.
