It’s that time of the month again! No not that time!
It’s time for some six word stories! Currently there isn’t a huge following, but hopefully as time passes more and more writers around the world will be contributing to this little exercise in creativity.
This post will act as the prompt for tomorrow’s event. I say tomorrow because that’s when I’ll be posting my stories, but feel free to be flexible with the day on which you post yours.
The idea is to write anywhere from one to ten six word stories. I usually go with six of them, just to keep the six theme rolling.
I’ve decided to do away with the inlinkz linkup until we gain some more followers. We’re going to do it old school instead. Just post a link to your stories in the comments of mine (and any others that you read).
To be clear, as the stories are so short, it is NOT MANDATORY that you use the prompt words. That being said, the following random words are this month’s prompts: (Be inspired by as many or as few as you see fit.)

They stepped out of the gift shop, her hand in his. The crowd on the sidewalk was packed nearly shoulder to shoulder and flowed like a lazy river.
Her hand slipped.
He stopped and turned, but she was gone–lost in a sea of people twice her height.
“Dahlia!” he shouted.
“Daddy!” she screamed from somewhere to his left.
“Don’t move!” he commanded and pushed his way through the crowd.
At the curb he stopped and scanned the street.
“Dahlia!” he shouted again.
She didn’t answer.
He panicked and pushed his way back toward the gift shop screaming for her.

Big news, minions. Wicked Little Things is now available for preorder! It’ll officially hit digital shelves on the 1st of December.
Keep your eyes peeled for my next post (later tonight or tomorrow) where I’ll be complimenting you, begging for your help in spreading the word about my new book, and offering you a chance to win a free copy–all at the same time, while juggling eight chainsaws and hula hooping. Okay, that last bit isn’t exactly true, but the rest is.
Also, have you joined my mailing list? And, why not? Yes, I’m looking at you. You’ll still get a free copy of Zombie Tree just for joining. How can you turn such a stupendous offer down?
