Six Word Story Challenge: Light

The days are growing longer and darkness is pulling back. It is time for LIGHT!

6WSCVisible light (commonly referred to simply as light) is electromagnetic radiation that is visible to the human eye, and is responsible for the sense of sight. Visible light has a wavelength in the range of about 380 nanometres to about 740 nm – between the invisible infrared, with longer wavelengths and the invisible ultraviolet, with shorter wavelengths.
Primary properties of visible light are intensity, propagation direction, frequency or wavelength spectrum, and polarisation, while its speed in a vacuum, 299,792,458 meters per second, is one of the fundamental constants of nature. Visible light, as with all types of electromagnetic radiation (EMR), is experimentally found to always move at this speed in vacuum.
In common with all types of EMR, visible light is emitted and absorbed in tiny “packets” called photons, and exhibits properties of both waves and particles. This property is referred to as the wave–particle duality. The study of light, known as optics, is an important research area in modern physics.
In physics, the term light sometimes refers to electromagnetic radiation of any wavelength, whether visible or not. This article focuses on visible light. See the electromagnetic radiation article for the general term.

Such a theoretical description. I bet you can do much better! 😉

Write a story about LIGHT 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. And don’t forget there are other meanings of ‘light’.

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 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!

Have fun writing,

Six Word Story Challenge – Writing

Last time the 6WSC-theme was Spring. This word loosened up a lot in us: enough to write eleven stories about!

6WSCBut two weeks have passed since and now it is time for a new challenge. The new writing prompt is… Writing! We are all writers here. And I want to know what writing does to you, what happens inside of your head. Why do you write? How do you write? What happens? Tell us a story about writing in just six words. About the process or the end product.

Writing is the representation of language in a textual medium through the use of a set of signs or symbols (known as a writing system). It is distinguished from illustration, such as cave drawing and painting, and non-symbolic preservation of language via non-textual media, such as magnetic tape audio.

Writing most likely began as a consequence of political expansion in ancient cultures, which needed reliable means for transmitting information, maintaining financial accounts, keeping historical records, and similar activities. Around the 4th millennium BC, the complexity of trade and administration in Mesopotamia outgrew human memory, and writing became a more dependable method of recording and presenting transactions in a permanent form. In both Ancient Egypt and Mesoamerica writing may have evolved through calendrics and a political necessity for recording historical and environmental events. The oldest known use of writing in China was in divination in the royal court.

So WRITING. 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.
