#6WSC Boxes


Boxes can hold wonderful surprises — even major awards 😉 — but they can also hold the bodies of our dear departed, or all our worldly goods.

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

Here’s a Six Word Story by Ernest Hemingway.


Such an impact and unseen images in only six words…

6wscPublish your Six Word Story on your own website/blog and paste the link to that post in a comment to this one here. Here is mine.


Are the cats alive or dead?

I will post a new Six Word Story Challenge every other week on Wednesday – so the next one will be on September 18. On alternating Wednesdays you can visit my dear Sister from overseas’ website Marion Driessen for her story challenges.

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.

    Boxes are great. There is that old saying about “Big things come in small boxes” How true!
