In the last two weeks, impressive stories have been told here at Figments. Stories in only six words! The prompt was Poverty. Feel free to take a look.
But today it is time for a new challenge. Write a story, using only six words and an image, about SPRING. With this cold, we can use a bit of warmth. I will be waiting here for you for the next two weeks.
At the spring equinox, days are close to 12 hours long with day length increasing as the season progresses. Spring and “springtime” refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection, and regrowth.
In some regions in the Northern Hemisphere, the astronomical March equinox (currently around 20 March, but traditionally 21 March) is taken to mark the first day of spring, and the Northern solstice (around 21 June) is taken as the first day of summer. In other regions, the equinox is taken as mid-spring.
SPRING it is! 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.
Here’s a Six Word Story by Ernest Hemingway.
Such an impact 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.
