I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your friends and loved ones. I just got back to the Bay Area myself, and I have to admit, leaving home was hard. One look at my mother’s tearing eyes and I felt like I’d just kicked a puppy. (Safe to say, my mother wins every guilt trip. And I mean EVERY single one.) Good thing I still have Christmas to look forward to.
Anyway, a few days ago I reblogged a post from Rachael Stanford’s blog titled “What can you say in 6 words?” As a writer myself, this post gave me the kickstart of inspiration that I’ve been looking for recently, and last night (as I lay stuffed with Dad’s once a year turkey and brandy sauce sandwiches, and a glass of coke and Kahlua) I started writing my own 6 word short stories. Here are the revised versions:
Christmas. Present from mom barks. Friend.
Ripped and burned photos. Past relationships.
Best friends. Car ride. Estranged silence.
Vodka shots: lots. Morning: first tattoo.
Facebook:Friend request-friend. “Benifits?”-Unfriend.
Well, I hope you enjoyed these and if you have any ideas for others please let me know! Also, what was your favorite Thanksgiving dish this year?
