#6WSC Blast

6wscWhile my sister from across the sea, Marion Driessen (The DuTchess) is on vacation, I’m carrying on her Wednesday challenge. When she returns, she and I will do it on alternate Wednesdays.

cosmicexplosionBLAST — It comes suddenly. A blast of hot air. A blast of lightning. Someone fires a gun. Someone sets off a bomb. Someone loses control of emotion. A rocket takes off for the stars. A party turns out to be much more fun than you expected.

Write a tiny little story in only six words (not counting the title).

Here’s a Six Word Story by Ernest Hemingway.


Such an impact and unseen images in only six words…

Publish your Six Word Story on your own website/blog and paste the link to that post in a comment to this one here. I’ll post my own in the pm.

The next 6WSC at Figments of a DuTchess will be up on Wednesday, August 14th.

Is mine:


Lightning left only Pete’s wooden leg.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      Thanks, Damyanti. 🙂 That’s actually a photo of a tree right outside my mother’s door we saw get struck by lightning during a torrential rain and thunderstorm. It was raining too hard for it to burn, I guess. The lightning just blasted it into kindling. There were bits of wood all over the yard, and hanging in the leaves of other trees!

      Thanks, Emmanuel! I’m sorry your comments went into moderation; I had to raise the bar on my spam filter because I get so many spam comments (I call them spomments). I hope you visit again, and I hope your next comment goes through immediately. If it doesn’t, I’ll approve it as soon as I see it. 🙂
