Fiction: Six on the Sixth – April 2016

Plan

His plan was infallible this time.

Peddle

We weren’t sure, but he insisted.

Pills

Sleeping pills would put them down.

Hang

Hanging would kill them for good.

Giant

But the giants were too big.

Inch

An inch short from finally succeeding.

6 on the 6th – March 2016

Mind

Her mind started to drift off.

Flash

She saw flashes of her life.

Entry

Entering that dreamy state of unconsciousness.

Bongo

She heard bongos playing somewhere close.

Carpet

Laying on a carpet of leaves.

Swept

The winds swept her live away.

This post was written in response to the Six on the Sixth Prompt – March 2016, hosted by Adam Ickes. The idea is to write 6 6-word stories. He provides us with 6 prompt words that we can use on our stories or not. The words this month were MIND | FLASH | ENTER | BONGO | CARPET | SWEPT, and I chose to use them.

February’s Six on the Sixth

(…or on the eleventh, as I never get to do it on the right date… ;o)

This month, the prompt words for the Six on the Sixth challenge are

GOBLIN | SPIT | SHINE | BELITTLE | GAPE | MAINTENANCE

This time I tried to link them all, and created a 36-word story composed of 6 6-word sentences, each featuring one of the prompt words.
The hardest one for me was maintenance.

This is how it ended up:

GOBLIN:       Wizards and goblins brewing a potion.
SPIT:         Toad's spit to top it off.
SHINE:        The liquid boiled, the vial shone.
BELITTLE:     Some saw nothing special on it.
GAPE:         The others were open-mouthed in astonishment.
MAINTENANCE:  Drinking it, they would be silenced.

Six on the Sixth (or actually the Eighth)

This month I decided to try the Six on the Sixth challenge, posted by Adam Ickes.

In this challenge, he suggests some prompt words and encourage us to write 6 six-word stories based on not on the prompts.

Here are mine.

Wrong

Can’t you ever do it right?

Cap

Missed ball, angrily throws his cap.

Splendid

Coming back home, she looked splendid.

Cantankerous

You know nothing! Lemme do it.

Torn

Love each other. Divorce papers torn.

Unfurl

Spring has already come; petals unfurl.
