And the winner of last week’s THANKFUL Six Word Story Challenge was…

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


I’m sorry storytellers
Last Friday came and fled.
I meant to post the winners,
But read a book instead.

You really must forgive me
(Although the fault’s my own),
For rarely is the chance on hand
To own the reading zone

I should have thought more of it,
An evening spare to read?
However did the happen?
I should have taken heed.

Never does a mother,
Who works, and cares and cleans,
Have time to sit and linger,
Well, only in her dreams.

So let me beg forgiveness
For my tardy sin of late,
And lay the champ before you
In their magnificence of state!

Last week, I forgot it was Friday. I was so completely engrossed in the book I was reading that I forgot to write the winner’s post. I also forgot to the schedule the new Six Word Story Challenge on Saturday – a week of utter failures you might say!

After Friday and Saturday came and went, it seemed impolite to mention it on Sunday or Monday. Almost like crossing that imaginary line when you’ve known someone too long to ask them their name – it’s just rude!

I will make this right here and now by wrapping up the open challenge.

Last week, I left you the prompt of Thankful and the winners (at Friday 9th December) were:

First place:

swritings with the story ‘Thankful the rain hid my tears.’

Second place:

Weezelle with the story ‘Found out it’s benign, after all.’

Third place:

trE with her story ‘I could have died. I didn’t.’

Congratulations to all of last 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

    I thought there was a problem with my ‘Reader’ … was going to complain to WordPress … you one to look out for when not there you’re missed! Ah communication by poetry … it is the truest way. Eric

    The poem is a delight, Nicola. I am glad you are well. Reading is important. Oooh, 3rd place. Sweet! Thank you guys! Congratulations winners!

    Welcome back, Nicola!


  7. Oops. Finger trouble there!

    We all forgive your reading
    most would do the same
    some thought that you had run away
    and gone and changed your name

    A week without your input
    seemed to last for ages
    we’re really pleased to see you back
    amongst the WordPress pages

    So off we go, another chance
    to write a six word story
    and congratulate the winners
    as they revel in their glory!
