#6WSC Sharp

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.

Razor_bladeSHARP – Cheese, blades, words, wind. Gossips’ noses. Toddlers’ elbows.

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.

Okay, here’s mine:


Scented pain drew my heart’s blood.

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



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.

    Marian, loved reading your blog this morning. I’ve come up for breath of air….but only because I have a dental appointment!?! Your post came at just the right time as I’m about to plot a different tack for promoting my books. I’ll launch the newest, Forgiving Effie Beck, as soon as I finish re-doing my website. What an every-loving maddening task! Not to speak of time consuming! Just had to pause to tell you how encouraging it is to know there are others out there who struggle with Publicity, Publicity, Pubicity. Thanks a bunch.

      Yeah, Karen, I didn’t get into this writing racket so I could WORK. It’s all fun and games until somebody signs a contract, eh? 😉
