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.

    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,
