Well, the six-word story trend had been there for some time now. However, I’ve only recently found out about it. The idea is absolutely brilliant. As the name says, the “story” cannot contain more than six words. Although it might sound easy, in truth, it’s really difficult. Six words do not leave room for telling a touching story.

I’ve read some on the Internet and I was impressed. That’s why I decided to give it a try. I must say that it thought me to capture the essence of my ideas in some cases.

Moreover, I’d like to call this sort of “stories” kind of a great writing technique to overcome writers’ block. It challenges the creator and also helps me clear his mind and shift his focus for a little while.

I highly suggest you try to write some six-word stories. You’ll have lots of fun!


She smiled softly but cried inside. (An example of what I wrote.)


Have you tried it already? What do you think about it?

Leave me in the comments section a six-word story that you wrote. I’m looking forward to reading them.

Have inspiration,
