6-Word Stories

I was looking through my bullet journal the other day and came across my half-finished 6-word story challenge from May.  The challenge from @pageflutter on Instagram gave me a theme for each day.  The task was to write a story using only 6 words. I based my stories on children’s books.   Can you guess the titles?

  1. SUMMER:  Summer adventure with lively, loving sisters.
  2. SCANDAL:  Stolen apples? Rumors spread. Lesson learned.
  3. THE QUEEN:  “Ouch, lumpy bed!” said future queen.
  4. CHOCOLATE:  Golden ticket gives Charlie chocolatey future.
  5. CLOSE CALL: Long narrow holes beckon ants–ZAP!
  6. FOLKLORE:  House with chicken legs? Run fast!
  7. THE GIFT:  Jonas receives society’s memories-a gift?
  8. DREAM COME TRUE: Gown, glass slippers, dancing ’til midnight.
  9. ABOUT A DOG: Supermarket stray helps girl find home.
  10. CHILDHOOD MEMORY: Nancy and friends solve every mystery.

Having a place to collect monthly challenges is one of the things I love about my bullet journal. Maybe I should write these stories on sticky notes and use them to promote some of these books.

  1. I love the six-word story challenge! I love the possibility this invites for students and their own writing too — how do we tell a story in six words? Is it possible? What does it look like? Thanks for sharing!

  2. When I saw your title, I had to visit. I love six-word stories and love how you crafted them around children’s lit. I’m pretty sure I was able to figure out most of them.
