It’s Friday people, and if you’re anything like me – you’re damn thankful for it!
This week I left you the prompt of pride to form your story around. When I pulled this one from my list I had just finished reading Pride & Prejudice, my favourite classic novel, which I read at least twice a year. My own six word story (He wasn’t superior, but didn’t realise), was based on my opinion of Mr Darcy and whilst he is clearly superior in terms of social status, he is sorely lacking in certain elements of his manners and character. A lesson that he learns from his beloved Elizabeth Bennett.
I wondered if you would write about dented pride, misplaced pride or that warm feeling you get when you do a good job of something. I wondered if you would write in first person or third, and if you were you giving me your opinions of some other person or of yourself?
Why don’t you judge for yourself and reread this week’s entries here.
This week, first place goes to:
Dermott Hayes with his story ‘Two, now five, we’re a pride.’
(Thank you for the beautiful picture of the Pride of Lions, I do love a good collective noun. A Loveliness of Ladybirds and a Murder of Crows are my favourites.)
Second place goes to:
The Poetry Channel with his story ‘He bore his shame with dignity.’
Third place goes to;
trE with her story ‘Try to break her, you’ll fail.’
Congratulations to all of this week’s winners. As usual, please feel free to download and use one of the below badges on you blog.
Over to you!
This week, the Six Word Story Challenge needs you. I want to know what you think of the weekly post:
- Do you like the concept?
- Do you agree with the way the winner is chosen?
- What do you think of the prompts?
- Would you prefer to write a six word story with a picture prompt? Maybe you would prefer that I set you a more targeted prompt, i.e. ‘You’re at the train station, write a six word story about the journey one traveller is embarking on.’
- Is six days a good length for the challenge?
I’d love to get some feedback, what would make the challenge better? Do you like it as it is? Let me know, I’m feeling a bit stale and would love to mix it up if you’re all feeling the same about it.
Until next time,
