6 Word Saturday

A blogger that I follow posted a challenge I couldn't resist!

She writes,

"I believe it was Ernest Hemingway who came up with the 6 word story idea, or at least accepted the challenge to try and created one of the best 6 worders ever:

For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.

Here's my try:

Funerals were funny, but not his.

Not as complete as Hemingway's, but its a fun challenge. Quite a challenge.

What have you got?"


Well, I'm on this fairy tale haiku kick right now, so challenges like this really intrigue me.

I mean, telling a complete fairy tale in a haiku seems hard enough let alone in six words?

Here's my attempt:

In demand, true love, no price.

Castles, made of sand, will fall.

Happily ever after, a fairy tale.
 Prince finds Princess, a perfect beauty.

Whaddya think?  Happy 6 Word Saturday!


  1. Woman downgrades husband to roommate. (5 words. That count?)

  2. Works for me! Short, sweet and to the point.

  3. Lady weeps about her terrible choice.

    (I won't admit how long this took. Love this challenge)

    I write stories about women and choice, so I knew that had to be integral. Thanks for making me think!
