Six Word Story Challenge: Food

This week, the Six Word Story Challenge – 6WSC – is all about FOOD.

Food is any substance consumed to provide nutritional support for the body. It is usually of plant or animal origin, and contains essential nutrients, such as carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, or minerals. The substance is ingested by an organism and assimilated by the organism’s cells in an effort to produce energy, maintain life, or stimulate growth.

Historically, people secured food through two methods: hunting and gathering, and agriculture. Today, most of the food energy consumed by the world population is supplied by the food industry.

And food, eating, can be so much fun. There must be lots of stories to tell.


The challenge for you:

Write a story about FOOD 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.



Who’s next? :)

The next challenge will be published around Christmas. Doe je liever mee in het Nederlands, ga dan naar Verbeeld een Verhaal in Zes Woorden: Eten.

Mediterranean Bread

Inspired by Italy, and by my Facebook friend Anja, I decided to make a Mediterranean bread today. Meaning, I threw in everything that felt sunny and warm. Continue reading “Mediterranean Bread”

Photo: Craving for Freshly Baked Bread

If you could have anything to eat right now, what would it be?

This question had me craving for fresh crispy crusty crunchy delicious bread. And we can’t have a craving running loose in this house. 😉 Nor a hungry teenager!

So after almost three hours of waiting, finally this emerged:

Ten minutes later my son’s patience was rewarded with:

A fresh tuna sandwich with cucumber and dill.

Do I need to say the smell is tantalizing? Yummy!

What would YOU like to eat today? 🙂
