You don't match my sleeves today.

I actually like six word stories: They force me to let go of my need for perfection and just write what I feel :D
I usually don't write them that often, but I find they can be good to get out of writer's block. So I guess, for future reference, just skip them if they're not your thing.

Thanks for the view! :heart:

Brilliant! Though short, I find that a good 6-word story can be a lot more profound than a giant poem or novel. One of my favorites (though I cannot recall who wrote it) is

I agree completely! Though sometimes I find them really hard to write! I mean, the restriction of six words is both a thrilling challenge and a frustrating task. :giggle:

Ah, by the great Ernest Hemingway. I do so adore his work, and particularly this piece. I think it's amazing he could say so much with so little, and yet still leave the emotions to torment the reader. I just love words! Don't you? (:

I think in a way it is the challenge that makes completed 6-word stories so wonderful to read. They're so much fun to create, but it takes a while to write one that comes out just right. 

And as for words... I sometimes wish I could drown myself in words, filling each cell with a bit of their magic. If I could just dissolve my very being into words... the universe would be brighter for it. But I cannot give myself away to the magic, so I'll pour them out instead. I've always loved the power they have. The ability to paint a picture--or a scene. The ability to create music, swirling feelings, to provoke thoughts, all with simple strokes on a page or screen. But now I'm merely waxing poetic... I love that piece. It's so haunting, and beautiful, and kind of mind blowing in it's simplicity. We read that one in school years ago, and it's always stuck with me.
