I love life! But it's short!

Love at first sight! It's Dazzles!

Sparkling cider tickles the nose happily!

Fleece blankets snuggle the body closely!

I repeat the boring process daily.

A little difference might be nice.

Bound pages hold the key

I bring my fear close. Preparation.

A bird in a gilded cage.

Reality or dreams.Which is true?

A desire for more. Gripping. Driving.

Should past or future govern life?

Escape from life. What is it?


OK, some of those don't make much sense, but you can't really make a narrative in six words. I know what they mean. After a fashion.

Senseless drivel: there's no other way. :D

Alas, my mind has fizzled out.

Writer's block is epitome of evil.

Hail from the Realm of Shadows.

Nope, no idea what I'm saying.

Oh look, a duck. Fancy that.

Okay, where did that come from?

Exclamation point, question mark, exclamation point.

I float off into the dream-world.

Six-word limit: no freedom of speech.

My life: bed, LOTR, doodles, computer.

Lord of the Rings is awesome.

But then, we already knew that.

Hey, this is pretty fun, really.

Always six words: just count 'em.

And now I conclude this post. :P

Hehehee.

I feel like Hemingway definitely had something with the "for sale" theme; the ideas contained just within those two words add a whole dimension to the story. Same with "wanted" or "for rent" or anything 'classifieds'esque. E.g:

For sale: new coffin, never used.
or
For sale: coffin, only used twice.

:D

I like that one :D


For sale: coffin. Special clearance offer.

Free ashes. But of what kind?

Death or life. Which holds hope?

Who said life is ever fair?

Who cares? It's only a job.

Your job should never define you.




As you can see, job is a major issue right now :P :P

Laesha is taking her first steps in the RP world with Eilathen and a bunch of great characters in The Expected Party
Fan of Redemption: the Reckoning

Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good.


It's funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can't get to me at all
It's time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me
I'm free

Good one, Ladykat, cats will always feel which is right. Their instincts are amazing.

My six-word story of today, triggered by the many beggars in Dublin last week:

Hand uplifted. Pride destroyed by poverty.

That is a good, yet sad story. I'm so sorry, Ladykat! *hugs* Twenty years is a long time. Hopefully you find something else soon.

OOPS!! :oops:

I'm sorry drieske, I didn't mean to mislead you. That was about some friends of mine, a couple I know. She lost her job early last year, and he only works part time.

Thanks for the hug, though! I'll make sure I pass it along to my friends.

LK, I do hope your friends are on the right side of the work tracks soon!

And Erinhue, so much feeling in just six words. I do hope she will show up.

Now let me try a happy story:
