Last night I was visiting one of my favorite author's blog. She was having a contest to win an autographed copy of her new book that is coming out in May. All you had to do was come up with a six word story and put it in the comments section of that post. I was thinking "Hey! How cool, I can totally do that!" Turns out I totally couldn't. Everything I thought of had eight words. It was driving me crazy! So eventually this is what I used: "Six words really? I need eight!" Of course, I was highly amused and thought it was much better than what I later read: "I want to read your book". I keep checking the web site to see who won. So far it hasn't been posted. There were some funny ones. While I was a little dry last night, today I've been getting all sorts of ideas.
A list of fabulous six word stories:
Girl writes blog. Few people read.
Girl loses weight. Weight comes back.
Milk left on counter. Cat full.
Girl lacking confidence, now Breaking Free.
Poop on floor, cat for sale.
Girl starts singing, cats now hiding.
Teenage girls pmsing, midol much needed.
Girl needing exercise, beware wii boxing.
Girl learning to cook, chaos ensues.
Oregano and Rosemary, what's the difference?
Recipe, celery seed, what is it?
Girl growing older, lies about age.
So as you can see, I could do this all day. A day too late of course, but this could go on for awhile. I imagine six word stories will haunt my dreams now. I don't know who she will pick. I am not likely to win the contest. But I do know one thing for certain, I can't wait to read the new book. If one thing is for sure, it will be a laugh riot. After all you can expect great things from a Purdue grad. I should know I married one.
