Six Word Story – Ashamed

March 26, 2016

She weeps again. Another one-night stand.



for Sometimes Stellar Storyteller – Prompt: Ashamed

  1. I agree with Maria! This is short yet not short in meaning. It pierces the heart!

  2. Thank you for taking part, this story ticks all the boxes. It entices reader interaction, immediately establishing imagery and perhaps in this case, prejudice. It hints at a a back story and encourages us to imagine the unfolding plot. I was drawn to a happy-ever-after story but it could go the other way just as easily.

    I look forward to next week’s six word novel!

    • Thank you for hosting this, Nicola.. it was my first 6 word story and I really enjoyed the challenge. I will try to participate again next week 🙂

  3. On empty bed, tears she shed…

    Lovely poem, Lori! ❤ ❤ ❤

  5. For all the women who claim this is the life they want -I know most of you cry in the night.

  6. Oooooh – in six letters

    • Thanks, Raili! My first!

      • They’re challenging – I’ve yet to try my hand at it

      • That they are.. I read Richard Anker’s 6 word stories all the time. He has them down to a science. I may try again. It was fun 😀

      • I read Richard’s work too. He’s amazing. and Nick from Fifty words is great with the 5o words stories. I’ve dabbled just a little in that.

      • Oh yes, I read Nick too.. they are both great writers.. I wish I was half as good as they are on their bad days *laughs* Keep dabbling, Raili!

      • Hi Lori. What’s Richard Anker’s blog url? I couldn’t find it by Googling (but then I rarely go past the first page of results when I search).

      • Thanks, Lori. I now have Richard’s url.

      • Awesome, Sandra 🙂

  7. That sure says a lot! Great 6 word story!
