Six Word Story Challenge: Dilemma

The Six Word Story Challenge of this week is all about DILEMMAS.

A dilemma (Greek: δί-λημμα “double proposition”) is a problem offering two possibilities, neither of which is practically acceptable. One in this position has been traditionally described as Being on the horns of a dilemma, neither horn being comfortable. This is sometimes more colorfully described as Finding oneself impaled upon the horns of a dilemma, referring to the sharp points of a bull’s horns, equally uncomfortable (and dangerous).

The challenge for you:

Write a story about a DILEMMA in just 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.

Here’s a Six Word Story by Ernest Hemingway.

Such an impact and unseen images in only six words…

Publish your Six Word Story on your own website/blog and paste the link to that post in a comment to this one 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!

I look forward to your stories.
