UPDATE: Just under 10 days to get your entry in! If you have entered, please make sure your piece is in the folder!

A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.

As a Group, we encourage writers to explore their boundaries with prompts, collaborations and more, but we accept anyone and everyone too! Whether you are a digital artist, photographer, or something else entirely, if you can string six words together into a story, this is the place to be!
Please support the contest and :+fav: the article so that more can join in on the fun! :dalove:

I'm trying to submit to the gallery, but I'm getting an error that my submission exceeds the one post every thirty days limit. I have submitted recently, but not for this contest. 

Can I still enter?

You've already submitted a piece to the contest there, though I see your piece was sent into the wrong folder. I would encourage you to join as a member if you haven't already as that may be why. :hmm:

I have just seen it now. What I want to ask is: Is it more concerning fiction or TV like the Supernatural series or is it more reality in regard to the 6th sense and metaphysics?

:iconmalintra-shadowmoon:
Malintra-Shadowmoon Featured By Owner May 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
"Turning" is the other thing. I only know "Turning" in the reality sense and not in fiction: It is an awakening when the concerned is first becoming aware what is hidden in him and later on how to work with it, integrate it into life and how to control it.
