Six Word Stories – April 2015

6 April, 2015

Short form fiction is an excellent way to keep your writing sharp. There is no room for any loose or spare words in your storytelling. Adam Ickes runs the shortest fiction prompt there is – Six on the Sixth. The words this month are:

Bend, Desire, Fortune, Old, King, End

I’ve taken the prompts and written six six-word episodes of a longer story. Thus:

 

Fortune
An unexpected jackpot – that palmist’s useless!

Desire
He tours classic car showrooms, salivating.

King
That one! The Royals drive these.

Bend
Speeding, he sees the corner late…

Old
A vintage car has vintage brakes…

End
Enough money left for lavish funeral.
