NEW STORIES only six words long. Seems incredibly perfect for today’s micro-attention span despite their origin circa early 1900s. And I was thinking, why six words? – why not seven or three or… Well I’m not sure why six became the gold standard but it’s a good number; few enough to be a challenge, and not too few to make it torturous. Having said that I’ve had to discard good potential six-worders because less than seven just didn’t work which can be infuriating. So in the future expect some variations. More of the same… but different 🙂 Enjoy this weeks output:
