I spend far too much time on the web and keep seeing blogs, Twitter, NPR, middle school English classes probably; everywhere I look there are four to six word stories. They are amazing! Brevity of language used to illicit strong emotion and create vivid imagery. Quite a skill and the masters of the medium are artists.
I am not. Here now, my take on the six word story.
