Happy Friday Storytellers!


We made it to the end of another disorienting week in the real world, luckily for us, we can retreat into the Six Word Story Challenge for respite.

This week I left you the prompt of DECEIVER and I was expecting a plethora of tongue in cheek election stories. Luckily, you weren’t all surrounded by the miasma of gloom that us Brits were bogged down in so we had a nice mix of deceitful characters to read about. Click through to read the entries if you didn’t get chance earlier.

This week we only had 19 votes so I am reconsidering the new voting system we have in place, remember, this only works if people vote. I would love to hear your suggestions on how we can make the challenge more interactive (i.e., get people to vote) whilst keeping it fair for everyone involved. All suggestions gratefully received!

Anyway, to get to the bit you’ve all been waiting for – this week’s winners:


Six word story, 6 word story, writing challenge, writing prompt

First place goes to Diganta Misra with his story – ‘Fate wore a mask of sanguine


Six Word Story Challenge, 6 word story, writing prompt

Second place goes to Isabel Caves with her story – ‘Acquitted defendant smiles, remembering the murder’


Six Word Story Challenge, 6 word story, writing prompt

Third place goes to Shweta Suresh with her story – ‘I’m happy for you!”, she lied’



The winners get to download and use one of these highly prized badges for their blog.

Until tomorrow Storytellers.

This week we had 29 stories but only 17 votes – this means that some of our authors didn’t come back to vote! If you missed my post or reminders, remember to connect with me on these social medias so I can keep you up to date with the Six Word Story Challenge through the week!

  1. Egad. I just realized that you now have voting taking place on Thursdays, and not the “likes” from before. It’s my bad for submitting and not coming back to vote. I am one of the bad people! (I will do better this week.)

    I wonder if some of the lack of voting this week might have been due to that other pesky voting thing that was happening on Thursday? See if it increases next week before you decide on any changes.

  8. Well done to the winners. With regard to voting, I can sympathise with trE’s point about it being easier to vote as the week progresses but, as we’ve seen, that favours those whose entries appear earlier in the week. How about a star system where we could award 1, 2, or 3 stars to our 3 choices? I don’t even know if this is possible! Alternatively, you could delay the result by a week and have voting on the previous weeks entries simultaneously with the current weeks entries. That is: add your entry and, at the same time, vote for last weeks. Again, I do not know if this is feasible or, indeed, possible.

    Congratulations to all of the winners! I was taking a short break, so I did not vote and just logged back onto WordPress this morning. I actually liked the previous voting system. It is hard for me to remember to come back to do the actual voting using the poll.I am not sure how that is for others, but keeping it within the original post was easier to remember because I usually visited several times throughout the week. I do not get the pingback you do for the post to vote on Thursdays and I am not sure why that is b/c I have my blog set up to receive mentions and pingbacks. Whatever is easiest for you, Nicola, is what I would be for as you have to tally the votes and make the announcement. 🙂
