I’m back! (and so is the Six Word Story Challenge!)

six word story, 6 word story, writing prompt

Some of you may have noticed I haven’t been here since August, the summer was too nice to sit on my PC blogging so I temporarily closed my site down to enjoy those rare sunny days.

Now that summer is over and the nights are in full swing before I even get home, I’m resigned to spending endless hours indoors again. This is bad news for me, but great news for fans of the Six Word Story Challenge as it will be returning to an internet near you from next Saturday (25th November).

Diarise the date and be sure to check your WordPress Reader on Saturday morning for the new writing prompt. If you’re not a regular here, be sure to follow my blog for your chance to take part.

See you on Saturday!

How quiet was this week’s Six Word Story Challenge without trE? I can’t remember a single weekly challenge without an entry from that sassy, fun-loving WordPresser. I am going to miss her story entries and words of encouragement to all other authors. I hope she comes back to blogging one day soon!

Happy Friday Storytellers!

Well, I have had an absolute blast this week, your entries to the Six Word Story Challenge have been awesome!

It has been so much fun turning the challenge on its head and asking you to summarise a well known film into just six words. I hope you found that it was a good exercise in pulling the concept and theme into the briefest of sentences – because that was my plan.
