Six on the Sixth – June 2016

Lease

Her time would soon be ending.

Vital

Some important pieces just weren’t there.

Jumper

Her toes teetered over the edge.

Flight

It almost felt like flying–almost.

Point

Sudden and painless, her life ended.

Words

The memories can’t fix the sadness.

Six on the Sixth Prompt – June 2016

6on6It’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. Be inspired by as many or as few as you see fit. Most of all, have fun! That being said, the following random words are this month’s prompts:

Lease

Vital

Jumper

Flight

Point

Words

The Downside of Royalty (Brand)

People both hated and feared him.

The End of an Era (Flash)

The world changed in an instant.

The News of the Century (Radio)

Careful Planning (Practice)

Endless wealth fueled his cunning plan.

A Meal Beside the Sea (Lunch)

Oceanfront wilderness offered solitude and happiness.
