Page Flutter Challenge

Six-Word Story Challenge

 May

Part One

 

At the beginning of May, I decided to join a 6-word story challenge by Page Flutter to expand my writing skills & infuse my journaling routine with creativity! I must admit that, I have really enjoyed my first fifteen days. Moreover, I have had several Flash fictions inspired by this challenge. 


How to Play…
The beauty of 6-word stories is they can be scrawled anywhere—your journal, a coffee cup, a napkin, even a Post-it note.

  • Be sure to tag your stories on Instagram with #PFSixWordChallenge so we can all see it.
  • Tag me (@PageFlutter ) so she can give your awesome story a shout-out!

Remember: It’s not about having the “best” 6-word story.
It’s about inspiration, so have fun & take creative risks!

If you need a little help getting started, check out Page Flutter's 6-Word Story board on Pinterest. 

Did you know that 6-word stories were made famous by Ernest Hemingway, who skillfully crafted character, struggle, and heartbreak with six simple words, “For sale: Baby shoes, never worn.”

 I am not the only budding author that has enjoyed this challenge. Many rather well know authors have posted 6-word stories!

If you need something to motivate you, go ahead and give this challenge a try! I found it lots of fun and just the spark I needed to begin a story!
