Finding Everyday Inspiration: Six-Word-Story

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!
