Six Word Stories

Ernest Hemingway invented the six word story genre with his "For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn." Here are some six word stories we came up with.

"Scared to fall, climbs up high."- Alex Ellis

"I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed."- Daniel Chinn

"Enjoy youth, you'll be old soon."- Madelyn Curran

"But I ate chicken yesterday, mom!"- Toby Davidson

"Dancing in the rain, lightning bolt."- Hunter Bishop

"My pencil desperately cries for attention."- Zoe Rogers

Now see what kind of six word story you can write!
