Six Word Story Competition

Six Word Story CompetitionRecently I opened an Instagram account, mainly to show my poetry, six and ten word stories. Meh, some of them did well, some of them suck nuts. A friend of mine took notice and started submitting six word stories for my review.

We went bonkers with them.

We are now in a cut-throat competition to the death.

He writes a six word story, I post on Instagram with one of mine and watch the sparks fly.

I lose. Every. Single. Time.

My stories gain half the interest as this a-holeโ€™s do. Half. HALF.

Game on, bitch. This has been one of the most satisfying things Iโ€™ve done. I was looking for writing exercises and this fits the bill perfectly.

I invite you to play with us, post your six word stories on Instagram and Twitter. Use the hashtag #sixwordcompetition and tag my accounts so that I can follow the progress.

I will write a post in future showcasing the best of the best, but I bet you that my buddy wins it all. Damn him.

PSย we can make Hemingway proud, or we can make him cry, you choose.

Contest closes April 30, 2017, plenty of time to slaughter one of my best friends.

Edit: you may have noticed I keep changing the date. I may do this again next month and offer amazing prizes to the winners. Stay tuned for details!!

  1. I would love to participate as we do so here on WordPress too every Saturday, but I’m one of the few people who does not have Twitter or Instagram. ๐Ÿ˜Š Good luck and have fun!

    Dear friend of the Sudden Denouement Literary Collective, Skinny and Single, is hosting a Six Word Story Competition and is hoping that lots of writers will come out to play! I encourage you to check out the details and consider participating. Six Word Stories is a format I have not mastered but I love to read them!

  3. The wonderful people of Sudden Denouement brought me here and what a wonderful idea! I’ve already submitted one to Instagram and Twitter because I’m far too eager for my own good. Loved reading yours whilst I was there too.
