And the winner of this week’s DRAFT Six Word Story Challenge is…

six word story challenge, micro fiction, 6 word story, prompt, writing, #amwriting

Welcome to Friday and the conclusion of this week’s Six Word Story Challenge.

This week, I left you the prompt of draft to engineer your story around. As you will have noticed, this week’s prompt was a homonym. A prompt chosen to have more than one meaning so to give you as many launch pads as possible from which to fire your story.

I was expecting stories around cool breezes, first versions of novels and conscriptions. I thought I might find stories about pints of beer, selection of sportsmen or fishing boats. You didn’t disappoint me! You stories were wide and varied as usual.

In a happy coincidence, Rashmi over at MindandLifeMatters posted a prompt for her Limerick Poetry Challenge asking for a homonym to be used at least twice with different meanings. I entered this using my own prompt of draft since it fit so well with the Six Word Story Challenge. You can read my poem here.

I hope you enjoyed taking part this week, the winners this week were:

This week, first place goes to:

DaveJohnston with a story all us writers can relate to:  ‘Edit edit edit edit. Start again.’

Second place goes to:

Haylee with her story ‘He’d volunteered. The majority? Forced suicide.’

Third place was tied between several entries so I have awarded the prize to:

Peter’s Ponderings with his story ‘Grieving widows, full graveyard, lost generation!’

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,

Nicola x
