__heart-breaking six word stories
12 Monday May 2014
Thanks for the comment! 🙂
I think 15 was the saddest. Nothing sucks worse than regretting a decision you can never reverse.
True. #15 was heart-breaking too.
I don’t think the first one posted here really qualifies as a story. It’s too much of an aphorism. Now, if it had read something like ‘The tiny coffin was unbearably heavy’ one could concede that it was a narrative of sorts.
I suppose “The smallest coffins are the heaviest” could just about be a line of dialogue…
By far the best here, by which I mean the one richest in implicit story, is ‘Introduced myself to mother again today’.
I think that in one way or the other, they can all inspire stories. I agree though, the mother one was particularly powerful.

Go on, I’ll buy it.

Haha, this made me think: 18-word trilogy. I’m reluctant to say so for fear someone will write one.
Haha! I’d be interested to read it. Who can pull it off? 😛
“Had a great idea for another.”
six words – *facepalm* – wake up, Marie.
I was wondering if that was the six word story. 😛 She’s too witty for both of us.
These are beautiful, I hadn’t actually seen before so thanks for sharing! 🙂
Oh, I’m glad then! I was worried everyone would comment below with, ‘Come on! This is old news!’ 😛
I preferred the coffin and soulmate, a surprising twist that made you think.
Yeah, the soulmate one made my heart ache. 😦

So heart-breaking. 😦

Missing is ‘For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn.’ Hemingway, I think. What about ‘Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived.’ With all the faults of a modern society, we do seem to have moved on a little from Henry VIII.
Wow, that baby one is powerful. I think I’ve read it somewhere before. Thanks for the additions, Raymond.
1, 8, 11, 18,20 but 13 is just a creepy one. I wouldn’t be crying I’d scared shitless.
#13 really is creepy!
