TECHNICALLY IT’S WEDNESDAY in Scotland. And as a result here are some more six word stories in this 26th edition. In keeping with tradition of the last few posts, please add your own if you feel inclined.


Monster caught. Chalk outline miles long.

Rhinoceros robbed. The piano forever off-key..

Fishing boat drifting, empty. Neptune satiated.

New day; 98 hours long. Enslaved.

Maniacs are unstoppable on submerged submarines.

As suspected, X-ray revealed no spine.

  1. Mobster caught..”

    Like that one

    1. Thank you! Sorry for such a delay in replying.

  2. Thursday followed Tuesday; Wednesday migrated north!

    1. Lol, good old Wednesday,the reliant marker of midweek takes off. Nice one bookheathen!

  3. This one breaks my heart. “Rhinoceros robbed. The piano forever off-key..”

    1. Glad it spoke to you. My favourite too, cheers Jenn.

  4. I love the alliteration in this: “Maniacs are unstoppable on submerged submarines.” What a tongue twister! I didn’t get the one about the piano being off-key, but I did feel a pang of sadness for the rhinoceros that were robbed (not being sarcastic).

    1. Thanks, I enjoyed coming up with a multisyllabic 6 worder.
      The off key piano is as a result of the ivory being stolen, cursed to be offkey for the treachery.

  5. Very interesting, all of them. But I also like what most of them liked. The last one. Fionn. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Great as per, but I didn’t understand the rhino one and kept putting elephant…oh ok was that it – Very good…that is loaded then.

    also … in case you miss it. Michael from poets for peace wants all contributors to email him their permission url/name/location for to be included in praxis – magazine offering to publish the collaboration – and if you know of any peeps could u pass it on, please?

    1. You got there โ˜บ I went for rhino over elephant, I dont think it was as primed though, so maybe the impact wasnt there like it could have been.
      And i will certainly do that Anita, thanks for passing that on.

  7. Someone drained the Loch????? Where’s the dehydrated corpse of that poor sweet monster?? ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. They sure did, and that monsters even bigger and yet to be found ๐Ÿ˜€
      Corpse of nessie is projected to provide 80% of Scotlands revenue once housed in a museum, currently being built lol

      1. In that case the SNP can safely ask for another referendum and hope to win this time! ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. Great stuff! I especially like the last one ๐Ÿ˜Š

  9. I love the chalk outline, but it was the rhinoceros one that really made me laugh.

    Their hatred ran downhill, never up.

    1. I have failed. The rhino one was meant to be tragic, the result of being poached, unplayable ivories.

      And that means their hatred just keeps on going perpetually, dang ๐Ÿ˜•

      1. Haha, my bad. I have watched too much Monty Python.

      2. You didn’t fail, it was the first thing I thought of when I read it. I’m an animal lover. It’s interesting how our experiences change how we react to the same piece of writing.

      3. I was half kidding about failing โ˜บ
        Part of the great thing about writing is the subjectiveness.

      4. Okay, good, just checking ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. I really like ‘Monster caught’ and ‘New day’… Prime stuff!

  11. I love these! Here’s mine:

    Genelab run amok. Giant swatter needed.


    Mosquitos eating Chicago. News at Nine.

    Oh you are so good at leaving the footsteps to a great story! I especially love the new day one. Makes me think sci-fi and a new planet where humans are not at the top of the food chain. Loved the chalk outline miles long one too. ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Many thanks ViT, the sci fi angle is where I was going on the 98 hour day story, kudos โ˜บ
      Thanks for swinging by.

      1. VictoryInTrouble August 17, 2016 — 3:35 PM

        You’re welcome, LaW. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      2. Ok, ok, I will capitalise the ‘i’ next time ๐Ÿ˜‰

      3. VictoryInTrouble August 17, 2016 — 4:56 PM

        Ha, that made me laugh! I just follow your lead, Fionn. ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‹

  13. Good ones. Was the spineless one referring to American politicians???

    1. Thanks mon amie.
      No, there wasn’t anything specific attached to it, I guess it could be called general purpose, fitting of many people.
