A Tale of Seis Palabras...
On sixwordstories.net, anyone can feel free to submit any story of any genre........the twist being one has to tell their tale with only six words. It's an age-old exercise for writers, to get the creative juices flowing. Challenging yourself to create a narrative, a mystery, a bad dream, being as vague as you like or as descriptive as it is possible to be using six words. Sound easy? I beg to differ. When you think about it, most of us use more than six words to say the most mundane of things such as, "Honey, what do you want for dinner?" or "Occam's razor states that all things being equal, the simplest solution is most likely the correct one.".....Ok, so perhaps not so much the latter phrase, but I think you get my point.
What's different about this is being able to read all of the interesting "tales' of others.
My first submission:
"Finished. Record time. Talk is cheap."
Take of it what you will.
