A Week of Six Word Stories, September 27-October 3

They kissed, forgot hour, minute, second.

A chalky pallor turned to roses.

A house, six children, two cultures.

Jonathon handed me sunflowers, forgetting allergies.

The scandal came home, a shadow.

He kept horizontal, her daily yoke.

“We’ll be friends?” Then the lie.

oooh, six word stories? They’re terrific! My favorite from this post is “The scandal came home, a shadow”.

It’s amazing the feelings you can evoke with just six words. 🙂 Is this a blogging meme or something?

I’ve challenged myself to 365 six word stories. I post one each day on DIY Romance–it’s a site a friend and I started. We’re still in the process of trying to figure out how to build community over there, but everyone is welcome to come by and tell stories.

Tricky, tricky. “They kissed, forgot hour, minute, second.”-my fave.

It’s hard to tell the sweeter stories, but they give more back. Thanks! Robin

I agree with Scribbla – my favourite is the first one – how true, how true! You are so talented! Look forward to reading more 🙂

My favorite is the horizontal one…my horizontal is a release into dreams and blessed sleep. I was trying to imagine someone who spent nights AND days horizontal and what that would do to a relationship.

Thanks for stopping by!
