Evening Storytellers (it’s evening here in the wolds of Lincolnshire),

This week’s Six Word Story Challenge has come to an end and I have to say, I have been so impressed with your stories this week. Mind = blown!

This week’s prompt was Observation. Frequent visitors to my blog will know my stories tend to plummet to the dark side of the fence and I had a Twitter conversation this week with Princess Rogue about whether we could actually write anything light and airy. I’m still not convinced I wouldn’t just have nice middle class people killing each other instead of horribly conflicted ones.

So, to continue the theme, my six word story this week was

She felt him, lurking, seething, malevolent.

I hope I conjured up images of a jilted lover, an angry, resentful, man bent on revenge. I had in mind someone who was making their presence known either through sight or action. His intent would be known to his victim and all she could do was wait for him to make his move.

I had a lot of feedback this week on how you used my post on How to write the best six word stories to help you craft your entry this week, and boy could I tell! You did an absolutely amazing job. For anyone who hasn’t read through the stories submitted this week, go and take a look.

So, let’s announce the winners:

This week, first place goes to:

 kirstwrites with her harrowing story – ‘Watching, learning, while Dad hit Mum’

Second place goes to:

Hayley with her story – ‘Sipping coffee, he studied her, unnoticed.’

Third place goes to;

AngieTrafford with her story – ‘I am simply watching; not stalking.’


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.

Until next time,
