Six-Word-Story

#six-word-story


Inspired by Hemingway’s famous six word story, “For sale: baby shoes, never worn,” the ‘six word story’ has served as a prompt for decades, testing writers’ ability to create their own succinct masterpieces. Like all stories it has the basics – a beginning, middle, and end, as well as all the things that make a story great – emotion, detail, and interest. This writing prompt is so successful that it continues to be used by literary fans to this day, and six word stories, also called, ‘short short stories’ and ‘flash fiction’ can be found all over Social Media Platforms.
We are inviting you to use your writing skills to produce miniature sensations for our delectation by reducing the thousands of words that authors have agonized over to find its beating heart and bring out the very essence of that story. “Boy Wizard, kills Voldemort, saves world,” could summarize the Harry Potter books; ‘Happily ever after in Regency England,’ is a pretty accurate description of Pride and Prejudice; ‘Motorbike roars, baby sleeps, giant bereft’, could encapsulate chapter one of The Philosopher’s Stone. We are looking forward to reading all your outstanding entries.


TASK:
The Social Media Staff are all busy as we’ve had a swap around and we are learning new skills, so we don’t have any spare time to read our favorite books or watch our favorite movies. So Gilda, Lipster and MissHavok thought it would be a great idea to ask all our lovely Social Media HEXians to distill these books and movies down to the basics, so when we find a moment to relax we can catch up with what’s going on.
This is a Writing task, you must include in your entry the title of the
book, film or chapter and the characters name you are writing about. Entries must be posted in this Hidden Replies Thread. Entries must have exactly six words and all four options in each category must be attempted for your entry to be considered valid.

I don't get it

Do we have to refer a book/movie and character and moment using only hashtags?

Also, since I submitted already does it mean mine is not valid? XD

@MsVera I amended the Categories and highlighted the Options. I hope this makes things clearer.
And as the Task wasn’t clear, yes you can resubmit your entry.

Do all categories have to refer to the same scene/chapter ?
Or can the answers for each category span acrsoss the book?


As in, say with this example, could it have been

Harry Potter books or movies: Movie - Philosopher Stone
Part 1. Book or movie - Green light flash, James, Lily dead.
Part 2. Tweet style - #BoyWhoLived #ByeByeVoldemort
Part 3. Characters - Snape's Good, Quirrell's Dead, Voldemort's Back
Part 4. Chapter or moment from movie - Troll in the Dungeon. All good.

@LadyDeSeis and @Joan-dArc
The stories for each part can be from any chapter, or scene of the same HP movie, or book.

Yes Joan it could've been like that as well. As long as it covers the same Book/Movie in the series.
