The Six-Words Challenge

Yes, I obsess easily. So I read this blog post and was reminded of Ernest Hemingway's 6-word story:


'For sale: baby shoes, never worn.'                   --Amazing, right?


So here comes the obsession. I asked some friendly Tweeps to think up of some more stories. So far:


@VerbaVitae: Ate. Threw up. No more chicken.       &      Fond. Lost. Found. Love's lifecycle. <3


@SeanWallace: He died happy; I made sure.              (LOVE IT!!!)


@timqueeney: No fun if you're a pawn!!!


My own, as always are a tad ridiculous:


Stepped on your gum. Kept it.
In his likeness, God created monkey.
Monkey did the same with man. (Yes, I cheated, that's two 6-wordsies there.)


And NOW I can't let this go... PLEASE, put me out of my misery and add some!!!

I'm posting mine on Twitter. Is that right, or would you rather I shared them here?

Haha, everybody's sharing them on Twitter. No worries. Will put them all here after and let you guys know. :)

And if there's enough people interested, we can have a vote. Or else I'll pick my fave, lol.

Hello there, fellow #MyWana writer having a peek at your blog. I'm super busy with my parents over from UK right now, but I am so doing this as soon as they leave. Nice to 'meet' you.

Oh, these are fun! My favorite is "He died happy. I made sure."

Um, I can't think of anything. How about "The dog sneezed. Allergic to traitors."

Haha, love it, Julie.

There's lots more on Twitter @ #sixwords. <3

They keep coming, it's wonderful. Can't stop the tides from turning. :)
