Part of WordPress’s writing course Finding Everyday Inspiration.

Today’s challenge is to play with word count. I don’t consider word count too attractive a toy to play with, but out of sense of duty, I shall oblige. I’ve been producing posts of unchristian length lately, so in contrast, here’s a post of a christian length.

A short short story, I mean. Six-word-story, precisely. I did this format before in a characteristically cheerful and optimistic post (I mean the opposite of what I say), but once you and your blog reach a certain age, you can’t probably reasonably expect to do something new.

She prayed for help. Unheard, unheeded.

And that’s all of my writing assignment for today!

  1. Oh man. I don’t like this prompt. I’m about a week away from this one I think. I like your tiny story though. But I don’t think I’ll be able to do a 6 word story!!!

    1. No worries, it’s not a prompt to write a six-word-story, you can writer something longer or shorter than usual, and if you like, you can set a word count. Again, you can twist the challenge as you see fit!

      1. Phew. Thanks! Although I’ve just crawled out of bed and can’t really think too far beyond just yet. Need. Coffee.

  2. You should go over to Richard Ankers’ blog – he’s a master of the six words 🙂

    1. Thank you! It look me longer to write (think of, rather) these six words than it normally takes me to produce a longer post!
