Six Word Stories Return From Retirement!

Based on a suggestion from the estimable Marjorie Tucker, the Six Word Story contest is coming out of retirement for the duration of the stay-at-home order in NY State. That is, the s-a-h order in NYS; the contest is available to anyone, everywhere.

How it works: you post a six word story in the comments here on the blog, or on either Facebook page unto which I will share this blog post when it’s done. No topic is required, suggested, or excluded.

Each week, based on criteria I will divulge to no one, I’ll choose a winner for the week’s contest. Every Wednesday I’ll start a new contest. That way, maybe at least once a week we’ll all know what day it is.

You may begin.
