Indulging in these six word story challenges has been one of my most rewarding blogging experiences so far. I’m in the middle of moving house, but I still managed to come back to Nicola’s blog find the topic for this week, think about it and post an entry. Interestingly, the topic this week is “regret” and I can only hope I don’t get to experience this on moving day due to my clearly lopsided priorities 🙂
So.. regret they say, and my attempt is:
She slipped out quietly, hating herself.
Ananya, author of a blog I follow, had recently written this post on her blog which prompted this thought. Thanks Ananya, and more power to your friend.
And here I go again, trying to capsule a message in six words,in response to Ben Nicholson’s challenge. The theme this week is Passion.
My entry is: She kept sprinting, exhausted and exhilarated.
As a beginner runner this resonates with me because this was how I felt the day I ran my first 5K. I wanted to run for 30 minutes straight, no matter how exhausting. I had trained for 8 weeks to get there and I simply had to give myself the satisfaction of accomplishing my goal.
This, however, is dedicated to all the serious fitness enthusiasts I know, and do know quite a few of them. To those who pack running gear into their holiday bags, to whom sweating it out at a triathlon is the best form of unwinding, and whose bikes cost more than their cars. Their passion is truly inspiring.

This is a different six word story challenge, hosted by @nicolaauckland from Sometimes Stellar Storyteller. Since I enjoyed the one by @bencnicholson so much, I jumped at this second weekly challenge as well :). But I’m a chatty person you know, too many six word stories may make me a quiet individual! Or maybe not, the damage is too deep :D.
The theme for this week is: a twist in the story.
And my attempt is: Wanted sugar, picked up salt instead.
I picked this challenge up from a lovely blog I follow- Sometimes Stellar Storyteller – the challenge has originally been posted by Ben Nicholson to base a six word story on a theme. An incredibly difficult task, but a thoroughly rewarding experience! The theme for this week is Loss.
My attempt is:
He still wears his wedding ring.
I really look forward to your comments, and encourage you to look up the challenge!
