An Economy of Words

Could you write a story using only six sentences?

I tried to write one using six words and it was a killer assignment. It made me think though and stretch my writing muscles.

I may try to craft a six sentence one and send it into this blog. Let me know if you decide to play along.

Also, here is another question for you all. Are all writer's crazy? Let Saoirse know what you think at the link below.

    Cool! Disney trains its artists to master expressing a complete character in less that ten lines. Talk about choosing your moves carefully...

    Hmm. Now I must ponder 6 sentences...And sleep... ;-)

    I don't mind if I'm a little crazy. Better than being boring and normal!

    Yes, Susan, I remember his stories. I loved his writing style form the first time I read him.

    The answer to your question is, yes. The addendum, though, is that all people are mad. It's merely a matter of degree and how they happen to be twisted in their own way.

    I like the writing challenges you put forth. The exercises you provide. Someday you'll make a good teacher; because you are inquisitive and enjoy your creative muscles.

    Until next time, Sara. Keep smiling.
