six_logo_a4

      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. 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).

  2. 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.

    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. 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. 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˜€
