Six Word Story Challenge – Poverty

Are you up to a challenge? A challenge where you will need your imagination, a photo and a lot of only six words?

During the next two weeks I am searching for stories about POVERTY. In only six words! Let a photo or image inspire you to write a story. Or first write the story, and then make or search for a picture to go with it.


Such a strong story and unseen images in only six words…

Every two weeks on Wednesday I will post a new theme for this Six Word Story Challenge. Publish your Six Word Story on your own website/blog and paste the link to that post in a comment here at Figments. I will include your contribution in this post, forming a list of stories.

Will you join me? Will you? Say you do 😀 And share the challenge news!

Have fun writing,

The next challenge will be posted on Wednesday, March 13.



Just this once I’ll start myself:

Who’s next? 🙂


Caretaker of lads and cats. No lady, but all woman. RPGamer. Avid reader. Writing my first book, squeezing in time during busy days. And nights if needed. Because I'd love to introduce you to the wonderful people who are living in my mind.

    1. Excellent and horrible video about the bio-industry and mass-production and -consumption. Your contribution to this Six-Word-Story challenge has hit me deep.
      And you are so right, Dauw:
      Don’t let it get (any) chillier.
      Fijn weekend,

    1. Mariane, thank you for participating 😀

      You have created a mysterious photo, where the eyes are drawn towards the person in the light. Everyone needs to be loved and light. And your story is a true one. Nice!


    1. You put the link at the exact right spot.
      Wonderful contribution to the challenge, Mormor. Thank you.
      You are so right. And we need that future for our children! The photo is as disturbing as poverty, it’s great.
