Six Word Story Challenge: Daredevil

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

Synonyms for a daredevil are:

  • adventurer
  • stunt(wo)man
  • madcap
  • show-off
  • risk-taker
  • person who takes risks

I’m sure there are lots of stories behind this writing prompt!


The challenge for you:

Write a story about a DAREDEVIL 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.



The next challenge will be published on March 26. Doe je liever mee in het Nederlands, ga dan naar Verhaal in zes woorden met beeld: Dilemma.

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. Oh I miss you too, Kathryn! *hugs* In a couple of weeks, I should have more time to visit and write. Took a big decision last Tuesday evening: to stop writing the column for my university (every other week). The allowed subjects were too narrow and blocked my inspiration. I will miss writing them, will miss my readers, but they can always visit my own websites.
      THANKS for caring, sweetheart.
      Much love,
