Your Six-Word Stories

Nov 17, 2021, 09:34 AM

You may recall that last year we featured the wonderful six-word stories of our Retiree Connection group members. We then asked to hear from you, our retired members, about your experience in retirement. Our staff has enjoyed reading through the submitted stories and wanted to feature a few. Check them out!

The History of Six-Word Stories

It’s an entire story written in only six words. It has been said that Ernest Hemingway was the first to do this when he was challenged to write an entire story using only six words. It has also been said that writing teachers before Hemingway used this method as an exercise for their students as far back as the early 1900s.

Lindell Edmonds - “One chapter ends, another one begins.”
Becky Hutchins - “Retirement is the best profession of all!”
E Gene Schneider -”Retirement secure WITH wife and MOSERS.”
Donna J Cavitte - “Make time to feed the birds.”
