This is a six word story:

I just pretend to be profound
Arrr maties,

As ye know tha Captain be very busy with 'is school work, but we don't want t' leave ye without entertainment. So I'll be takin' over and postin' tha work that we've decided not t' use as official releases fer one reason o' another.

This piece fer instance be a six-word story which we would NEVER release under normal circumstances. Reason bein' they're waaaay too easy t' do. In fact this piece was a joke that we made at one point, since many people who write six word stories tend t' 'ave this pretense o' bein' deep and meanin'ful.

For those o' us at Word of Chen (i say us but there's only two o' us) we think that, it's better t' use more words in order t' properly create a good atmosphere fer a moment.

Hopefully ye enjoyed this and if ye want, check out some o' tha Captain's official work;

The Avatar State The Avatar State:

Just as there are four elements
Existing in harmony with one another
So too are there four states of poetry:

[Air:]
Air is the element of freedom
Exemplified by the use of free verse
It has no structure and no true shape
But allows us creative control

Through the use of air as a poetic medium
We allow our emotions a freedom to be
We allow them to soar upon worded wings
Gliding freely through the skies of literature

[Water:]
Water is the element of the changing flow
It can be hard as ice or as soft as snow.
Its nature resembles the power of rhyme
Which grants us order and a structured mind

CHENBEARD RAN UP to the group of pilgrims that were approaching the stream and upon reaching their group he dropped to his knees and began to plead with them, "Sirs! Please excuse this ragged man and take pity on him," he said, his strange brogue vanishing instantly to be replaced by perfect Common. "My companion and I were waylaid by bandits and she managed to escape them by hiding near the stream. They've taken all of my clothing and possessions and though I don't much care for the loss of my material wealth, I would like to beg you desperately for a set of

Sudden Cruelty Sudden Cruelty:

He is a God, or so he believes
He judges others and puts them into stereotypes
Asian? No life! Hispanic? Brainless!

He thinks he has control over his world
A delusion which he has never been able to break
Me? I'm better than them, I'm smarter...

He sits alone in his room, ignoring the emptiness
He sits in front of his computer and passes judgement
Lol, you're wrong. You're stupid. Everything is stupid!

He laughs and smiles at his own cruelty;
He feels powerful and most certainly superior to all
But in the end, it's just a fantasy isn't it?

He curls up in his bed, thinking about tomorrow
Here, he's a king, but out

I love six word stories. At their best, they can hide a whole story in them, if you just know how to read it that way. However, I don't think this is the best six word story I've read - don't get me wrong, it is good - it feels more like just a statement to me. It just defines a person, doesn't tell a story. Then again, the fact that I had to google up the word 'profound' might have killed my imagination a little, but that is all my fault for not being better at English.

Congratulations on making it to the front page though, and you certainly have sparked my interest.
I shall wander through your gallery now.

That's not really a story at all, that's just a six word statement about yourself

according to "the pocket oxford dictionary", (produced in association with oxford university press)

story n. (pl. -ies) 1. account of imaginary or past events; tale, anecdote.


hence, statement can contain a story.
just need to expand your thoughts a little, i'm sure anything can be turned into anything.

Wow thanks for including that lovely definition. I really needed that for clarification, WHEW. I can finally see a clear account of some sort of past event through these six words. /sarcasm

I think that the statement is really interesting, but I just don't think it is quite specific enough to suggest any sort of story. Yes it is hard to be specific when you are limited to only using six words however there are much more successful six word stories that blatantly suggest an event of some sort. For example, Ernest Hemingway's six word story: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn" is slightly general, but it's specific enough to suggest that some kind of event happened for there to be a reason that the baby shoes had never been worn. The six word story on this page however doesn't really suggest any prior event. It's merely a statement about the way that the author thinks about themselves and possibly the way they view society. There are many possible reasons/events that have caused the author to pretend to be profound, but the six word story isn't specific enough to focus the reader's thoughts on a certain type of event or anecdote that could have happened. All it really suggests is that the author just arbitrarily pretends to be profound, and that's just the way they have always been. Therefore it's merely a statement. An interesting one, but not one that suggests a story.
