six word sunday instructions

There's a great group on Flickr called Six Word Story where the rules are oh-so-simple: create a story for a photograph using only six words.

From the Flickr group's site:

Ernest Hemingway was once prodded to compose a complete story in six words. His answer, personally felt to be his best prose ever, was "For sale: baby shoes, never used." Some people say it was to settle a bar bet. Others say it was a personal challenge directed at other famous authors.


I'm creating a challenge for my fellow bloggers -- Sunday will be known as Six Word Sunday, and participants should post a photograph with a Six Word Story on Sundays. No prizes are awarded, but it's awfully fun to get those creative juices flowing.

The rules, blatantly lifted from the Flickr group (with a slight modification):

I'd like you to post a photo with a Six Word Story in the title section of a [blog entry]. Be as inventive as possible. Have those few words tell the whole tale, and let the picture be its visual interpretation. Just make sure the title of your [blog entry] does indeed contain SIX WORDS in English.


To get things started, here's my first Six Word Sunday post:


of sound and fury, signifying nothing


(for this round, I'll not post the Six Word Story in the blog entry title)






Won't you join in?
