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. 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, and spread the word by reblogging, sending a pingback or even sharing on social media using the buttons below. It’s not a condition of entering the challenge but you might just inspire others to enter a story of their own.


Only one entry per person please. You can vote for as many stories as you like.

Today’s prompt is:


My attempt at today’s prompt is:

Today he suggested she actually cook.


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 5th August at 10pm 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 leaving the first submission only.

Good luck!

    Overlapping boyfriends? Moving to brothel next?


    This is unfortunately based on real life (although in real life much more than 6 words were used. When I met the person who is now my husband, I was dating someone else.
    Then at some point I sensed (and wanted) that something was about to start between us, but I didn’t have a chance to meet my then boyfriend to be able to break up with him first.
    So there was a 2 days overlap between boyfriends.
    A few days later, my best friend (of anyone else in the world) made a joke that meant what’s above. I didn’t get the joke right away, maybe because I never though she would say such a thing.
    My mom was with us, understood and laughed.
    When the joke was explained I was so mad that I turned and went away. I was extremely mad at both. My friend for making the joke, my mom for laughing at it and defending the other girl later.

    • You know the worst part was that I actually heard someone say this once. It was in college and our dorm rooms shared a bathroom. I was obese at the time and they didn’t know I was in the adjoining bathroom. Truth be told, she wasn’t trying to be mean. She honestly thought all fat people were unhappy and that their kids would grow up to be fat and unhappy too.
