I like a challenge, and Adam‘s microfiction prompts for 6-word stories are certainly a challenge – but fun too!
The prompt words this month are: Weather, Fire, Pain, Pleasure, Ink, Purple.
And I’ve written one story for each word:
Started snowing but I’ll drive on…
Exhale, relax, squeeze trigger. Make history.
I ended his suffering. Mine began.
That final lottery number matches too!
His tattoo fades, the memories can’t.
Did YOU give baby that pen?
And as a bonus I also wrote a series using the same prompts:
Honey, I’ve printed our boarding passes!
(When we land, I’m gonna propose)
Fasten your seatbelts, we’re experiencing turbulence
Stewardess, should the engine be smoking?
Legs, arms, hideously bruised and twisted.
I leave her body. Try standing.
