I decided to challenge myself by writing a dozen six-word stories for the DP Weekly Writing Challenge. And boy, it was not easy. This is my first time writing such small tales. I did my best. I hope you enjoy.
She choked ‘til she bled out.

She turned as the knife swooped.

Stop it. But the knife refused.

No! Her hand pushed back futilely.

Blood seeps through the cracked door.

She wanted love. She died alone.

Lone figure stands on edge. Jumps.

Go fishing. Something pulls you under.

Go to college. End up homeless
Build a house. Lightning sparks fire.

A dancer. Crazy traffic. No legs.

First time skydiving. Excited. Parachute fails.

I could get struck by lightning


out of the clear blue sky


a boulder could come tumbling


down a mountain ravine


knocking me down


never to be seen


in this life; a careening


semi could come screeching


over top me leaving nothing


but pieces of me scattered


over the interstate; thoughts


of a bloody end leaves me shivering


to the very core; all these events


are worst case scenarios, but


the worse for me would be


losing the love of my family


and friends; how worse


could it be than being alone
