Contest will close in 7 days and everyone entering will be tagged with the results within a day or two of post payout.

How I choose winners

  • It's an actual story, something that suggests action
  • It's interesting
  • It arouses an emotion
  • It inspires thought

Common mistakes or reasons for not winning

  • Not following the rules (I do check)
  • Using a phrase or cliché rather than a story

Hello!

How is my favorite underground murderer? I see still pumping out those successful six word stories :P

I would apply, but my stories suck and I don't have it in me to write serious stuff... it ends up being too bogus.

Best of luck to all.
Cheers

@underground do you see what is going on here? Buahahaah

Undie Killer ... Hee Hee

I think it would be much better if you included in your post an example of the 6 word story, maybe of previous winners.
It would make it easier for those who have not participated before to know what you are looking out for.

·

thanks for the feedback gamsam. You can find all previous winners in my blog :)

·
·

Oh, noted
Thank you

·
·
·

You're welcome.

Back in my day, writers used to have to buy about 6 months' back copies of magazines and research the contents to see what the editors favoured. They never just handed the formula out on a plate :P

·
·
·
·

Haha.... Get your point.
Gotta work for it. :)

·
·
·
·
·

Lol yes. I already do plenty of work getting this out and paying for it :P

·
·
·

I remember that!

·
·

Still holds true Today!! Hee Hee :P

·

Yes, research can pay off ;) haha xx

"Turn hurdles your way to win."
This is my six words story.

Explanation:
Life has hurdles, we need to be happy and peaceful. But the answer is why god doesn't stop if somebody creates hurdles is he wants us to beat those satanic efforts and turn them into our path to win.

Hi. I didn't find the controversy in your 6 words. Usually, with a story, it's complete without further explanation. Thanks for filling in the gaps. I'm not a believer personally.

Thanks for playing.


"Do others as done to you"

The story explained:
When riting the Gospel, Jesus tells Mark: "Yo Dude, it is loaded and ready, mess with me and imma blow your brains out"
Mark replies: "but Master we cannot write that down in the book"
Jesus answers: "then put: Do others as done to you"...

·

LOL! He bares a Sword, so seeing him with a Gun is Fn Awesome!!! Woot

·

Nice but I couldn't find the image as copyright free unfortunately.

I really liked the layers in this. It was like a premonition... is it gonna stay with the dad or the mum? Divorce. That's how I read it. Really good stuff. I wish you'd used a copyright free image though.

Thanks for playing x

Thank you!!!

@moneyinfant has added your contest to the list Steemit Writing Contests: Issue #55. The list is updated on a daily basis and your contest will remain on the list until its expiration - there's nothing you need to do.

The list was created to save writers the excessive amount of time spent searching through the #contest tag for writing contests. Now they can just come to the list each day, see new contests and use their time doing what they love - writing.

If you'd like to help spread the word about the Steemit Writing Contest List I'd really appreciate a resteem, but it certainly isn't necessary. The project is simply meant to help writers save time and contest creators attract more contestants.

P.S. If you know of any contests I've missed I'd love to hear about them. Thanks!

·

thank you Money!

My pleasure as always!

Dearest @anjkara,

I figured I would give this another GO, since you might have changed your mind in allowing a little favoritism. (If it's top notch!) :p

Pizza!

Respectfully submitted, @eaglespirit.

·

I loved this, Eagle! Soooo controversial.

·

This is such a tragic story but I did need your explanation to understand what it was about (putting you over 6 words). I wish you'd used a copyright free image.

Thanks for playing x

Love people for who they are.

Hi all, I'm new here and decided to give this a go! And my story goes as follows:

Mushrooms? No! Cancel WW 3.

mushrooms no.jpg

https://goo.gl/images/2bvjxD

Explanation:
Conspiracy theories abound, with a nuclear war being a certainty in the near future. Even the Simpsons have been in on the prediction game!

This is something we need to prevent at all costs, otherwise it will cost all!

·

Nice story. We cannot prevent that which will happen from the many headed dragon. Cut one head another will grow and the others will attack before you can react. just love and do what you can on a small scale and leave the rest up to the Almighty God of the Hebrews :)

·
·

@peacemaker - thank you for your comment and support. Much appreciated!

·

Nice job, very controversial. I don't think it needed the extra explanation. You said it perfectly in 6 words. Totally scary stuff.

Thanks for playing x

"Mum, can boys be feminist?"

This was awesome and controversial but you only used 5 words. It's best not to include images that have words in them.

Thanks for playing. x

Nice job but unfortunately the words in the image tipped you over the 6-word limit.

This was a funny story but unfortunately you didn't put it in the comments section. I had to go and find it in your blog.

Thanks for playing x

Sorry I didn't understood : do I have to write it in a comment or like a separate blog?

·

Hiya Manda

You just reply in the comments. Don't forget the rules :D
