The Six Word Game - speak your mind in exactly six words!


The Six Word Game

Introduction - Short & Sweet"I'm sorry I wrote you such a long letter; I didn't have time to write a short one." - Blaise Pascal

Don't we all like brevity? The ability to articulate one's ideas with fewer words and sentences. It is what makes memorable speeches and slogans.

Some have taken this to new heights, with Six Word Stories. Have a read. Enjoy them. Laugh. Cry over them. Whatever. See if you can learn a thing or two.

Now try it yourself!

The Game - Stupidly SimpleThis open game owes its origin to the thread When you stumble on three great sentences, in which ByronBulb and yours truly took the liberty to exchange a series of posts using the six-word format (starting with post #8). We loved it so much that we decided to start a game on it.

The rules are simple:

1. Reply the poster above you with six You can use non-English words if that would make your six-words line more meaningful, flavourful, special, etc.English words - no more, no less.
2. Your six words can form any number of sentences, phrases, questions, etc.
3. Use proper punctuation. (For example, "Let's eat Grandma." vs "Let's eat, Grandma.")
4. Format your six words [B]bold[/B] and in
[CENTER]centre alignment[/CENTER].
5. Type your OOG (Out-Of-Game) text in normal format.

Now it doesn't have to be a six-word story. It just needs to have a meaning in connection with the previous poster's entry. Don't worry if you think your six words are not as good as those on www.sixwordstories.net, because we are here to have a bit of fun and maybe in the process become better at writing.

Allow me to start with the first one:

Length matters not, would say Yoda.

Game on!

Mind brimming, the pen ran dry.

The longest hatred isn't always honest.

Even great concepts may be spoiled.
