#SixWordStoryChallenge 15th September 2018

Challenge open Saturday 15th September 2018 – Thursday 20th September 2018

Welcome to the Six Word Story Challenge.

For those who have never dropped by before, a new prompt is posted every Saturday morning at 9am GMT, either on this site or that of fellow blogger Wonderwall. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to plot a story on that subject… in just six words.

I’ve been rescued this weekend, by a good friend who gave up her Friday night to help me tackle some unpacking in my new home. So in honour of her, your prompt for this week is:

Friendship

And here’s my attempt to get you started:

Shopping, drinking, partying. Besties at 80!

See what you can come up with, and enter your six-word story in the comments below.

So how does it work?

  1. Leave your story in the comments until Thursday 9.30pm GMT
  2. Like, comment & engage with other authors
  3. On Thursday, I publish a poll – and this is the important bit – don’t forget to come back and vote for your favourite!
  4. Bask in glory if you’re a winner.

Never tried microfiction before?

Never fear, help is at hand. You can get a few more hints and tips about writing six word stories here.

Can I share my story?

Of course – in fact, please do! The more people who take part in this weekly challenge, the merrier. Tell your story and inspire others to have a go. Write a blog post, send me a pingback, share your six word story on social media or reblog this post to encourage your own followers to take part. There are various different hashtags floating round t’internet, so you can use any of these to reach a wider audience – #SixWordStoryChallenge #6words #sixwordstory #microfiction #flashfiction #fiction #amwriting. The most common one we’re using at the moment is #SixWordStoryChallenge, so linking up to that hashtag should help you connect with other participants.

How is the winner chosen?

I close entry to the Six Word Story Challenge on Thursday and open a poll which remains open for 24hrs. Anybody and everybody is invited to vote in this poll, the winner is the story with the most votes at 9pm on Friday. Simples!

  2. Sat on hold to IT brainstorming. I wanted to use the ship part and make some type of analogy with how friends help through rough seas and the joys of tranquil sailing. Thought about referring to crew. I think you don’t necessarily have 1 constant companion so thought about saying something about crew changing….alas really hard to fit all these ideas into 6 words. I have arrived at the following:
