You all know the rules by now. I roll six story dice and I use these to inspire six stories, all exactly six words long, then you guys come along and post your far superior efforts in the comments section. So here goes nothing:
Iacta ālea est.
- Caught the lifebouy. Saved the dog.
- Removed the prickles. Lost the cactus.
- I was dead and am alive.
- Reading ‘Final Demand’, eating final breakfast.
- Halloween: masked thief escaped into crowd.
- FAULTY HAT COMMENCES 823bn RABBIT APOCALYPSE.
Phew! That turned out to be trickier than I thought (especially that ruddy cactus, didn’t have a clue what to do with that one).
Here’s an idea. Since I know you’re all better writers than I am, why don’t you try coming up with your own six word stories based on the above stimuli (or based on something else, I’m easy) and share in the comments below so we can all see how it’s really done?
Until next time!
