Six Word Story Challenge

I usually take part in these challenges on Twitter when they are posted by the likes of Tablo Publishing and Kelsye Nelson but when I saw they ran on WordPress too, I jumped at the chance. 

I saw there was a buzz around Ben Nicholson’s challenge on Blogging 101 and decided to jump into that one too.

The prompt for this story challenge was Loss and my six word story is:

Today would have been his birthday. 

This is actually very poignant for me as today would in fact have been my dad’s 60th birthday so I couldn’t click past this one.

If you tried this or any other challenge, I look forward to reading where you went with it. Please feel free to post a link to your challenges in the comments below so I can find them easily.
