Six word novels

Ever heard of a six word novel? Neither had I, but it turns out you can find them on twitter. Following are some examples.

Faeries loose in library. Oops.

Guy meets girl, turns into werewolf.

The faeries found bright sparkly things.

Train invaded by exuberant school children.

You can find more six word novels here. They tend to be entertaining, so if you're looking for some laughs I recommend that you check them out.

All the six word novels I've shared are my own, by the way. :) To keep my creativity going I'm setting a goal of writing (at least) one six word novel a day for...oh, I guess the next month.

I haven't heard of 6 word novels before, but I've heard of 6 word bios -- where people try to encapsulate their life in 6 words. Difficult, very difficult indeed. I'll be interested in reading your 6 word novels!

The first one made me roar; how true!

Debra -- A six word bio sounds daunting. I'll probably stick to keeping my six word novels on twitter. If you want to find them there my profile is http://twitter.com/#!/SkyeSong777.

Magaly -- :)

And I left out a word in that one. The word "the" should be in there! "Faeries loose in the library. Oops."
