Recently I opened an Instagram account, mainly to show my poetry, six and ten word stories. Meh, some of them did well, some of them suck nuts. A friend of mine took notice and started submitting six word stories for my review.
We went bonkers with them.
We are now in a cut-throat competition to the death.
He writes a six word story, I post on Instagram with one of mine and watch the sparks fly.
I lose. Every. Single. Time.
My stories gain half the interest as this a-hole’s do. Half. HALF.
Game on, bitch. This has been one of the most satisfying things I’ve done. I was looking for writing exercises and this fits the bill perfectly.
I will write a post in future showcasing the best of the best, but I bet you that my buddy wins it all. Damn him.
PS we can make Hemingway proud, or we can make him cry, you choose.
Contest closes April 30, 2017, plenty of time to slaughter one of my best friends.
Edit: you may have noticed I keep changing the date. I’m going to do this again next month and offer amazing prizes to the winners. Stay tuned for details!!
