Sometimes Stellar Storyteller Six Word Story Challenge

Challenge open Saturday 5th March 2016 – Friday 11th March 2016

Welcome to the Sometimes Stellar Storyteller Six Word Story Challenge.

For those who have never dropped by before a new prompt is posted every Saturday morning at 9am GMT for you to interpret in any way the muse grabs you.

All you need to do is take today’s prompt, write a whole story in six words and post it in the comments below.

This week I am amending the rules slightly to restrict entries to one per person, I love to read your stories every week but as the challenge gets more popular it gets harder for participants and visitors to read through an ever growing list of entries. Restricting to one per person means that everyone’s entry has an equal chance of being read. This seems the fairest thing to do.

As usual, the winner of the challenge will be the story with the most likes in the comments below by the close of the challenge on Friday evening.

Please feel free to invite your friends to this page to support your entry. They might even feel inspired to enter themselves.

PLEASE REMEMBER TO VOTE WHILE YOU ARE POSTING YOUR ENTRY. ONE LIKE = ONE VOTE. The entry with the most votes at the end of the week will be crowned the winner.

So, on with the challenge.

Today’s prompt is:


My attempt at today’s prompt is:

He found her birth control pills.


The Rules:

  1. Write a story in six words or less inspired by the prompt.
  2. Write your story in a comment below to be entered. A link to a blog post is not an entry.
  3. A blog post and a pingback is not a requirement of the challenge, just your story in the comments below but feel free to add your own blog post if you wish. Remember to use the tag #stellarstorychallenge if you do and provide a link to your post.
  4. Read and ‘like’ at least one other story published on this week’s prompt.
  5. The winner will be the story with the most likes at the end of the challenge. This week, the end of the challenge will be on Friday 4th March at 9pm GMT.
  6. I will announce the winner on this blog on Friday evening and include links to the winners’ blogs.
  7. First, second and third place will have the honour of downloading and using one of my highly coveted awards on their blogs should they wish to do so.
  8. In the event of a tie for second and third places, I will choose a single story to take the placement.
  9. Only one entry per person please. Multiple entries will be deleted.

Good luck!
