Six Word Stories

I believe it was Dom who steered me to this article a couple months ago. Wired Magazine asked for six-word stories for a contest. This was based I understand on what Hemingway considered one of his best stories (all six words of it). “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”


I decided to play. Didn't enter though. Below are a few six-word stories I came up with. Feel free to critique, ignore or add your own.


"It's alive! Then cat saw it."

"Yes, be very afraid. Or not."

"Alien envoy arriving. Wants Starbucks franchise."

"Defuse bomb. Cut blue wire ... oops!"

"Damsel training -- nightgown, high heels required."
