6-Word Stories

Hi everybody!

A few days ago, Steve taught us a lesson on the power of stories. Inspired by Hemingway’s “baby shoes, for sale, never worn” story, we wrote our own 6-word stories. I thought I’d share a few from the group:

Long journal entries

capturing short details

-Daria

Stuffed bacpack

not so stuffed anymore

-Liv

Washed my clothes

Still not clean

-Eleanor

Frosty air

Turns into sweaty bodies

-Nina

Should we run?

Morning coffee instead.

-Alden

Bats, rats, bile…

It’s for dinner!

-Will

She held a bat

“eat food!”

-Ariel

Want a durien?

untouched, slightly opened

-Ted

Bug bites, colonies, needs tiger balm

-Shuier

Slimy and wet- like this leech!

-River

Jungle rain makes mud…

whoops again!

-Noah

Alden plays

Liv listens

Ted talks

-Chris
