Six Word Stories by Ray Printer Friendly

This has been around for a while, so you may have already seen it splattered all over the internet, but just in case you haven’t, Wired got a bunch of people together to join in on a little six-word-story fun. Based on a six-word story by Hemingway, the idea is to create a story using just six words.

A while back, Jesse brought us Fifty Fives, and I felt it was a pretty good time (Rik’s, Carey’s, Trey’s, and mine). I’m not sure if this is anywhere near as fun as that, but I’ve been keeping myself entertained with it for a couple of days now. One thing that I liked about Hemingway’s six word story is that it actually told a story. That’s the hard part, is actually conveying an entire story in six words. I’m not sure if I’ve been successful or not, but here are a few of my attempts:



When her father arrived, she cried.


Story of my life: critical misfire.


Vampires have grown to hate piercings.


He bought my innocence with candy.


She said, “No, never.” Then did.


I never liked my liver, anyway.
