This post deserves an explanation.
I found a website a while ago called Six Word Stories (http://www.sixwordstories.net) where you can submit / read stories that are – obviously – only six words long. I shared the site in class last week and someone decided it would be interesting to make it one of the topics for writing. I decided to choose it.
As always, your comments and creative criticism are more than welcome.
