Six-Word Story Tips & Tricks

by Jennifer Lamont Leo

Entries to Writing North Idaho's Six-Word Story Contest have been pouring in. You still have until July 15 to enter, so set your pens to scratchin' or your keyboard a-tappin'.

Here's an inspiring video I stumbled across that will help you write the best six-word story ever. Although the video specifically deals with six-word memoir, and we're letting you write any kind of story (memoirs are certainly welcome), it will give you some inspiration and useful tips, such as:

* Make it personal
* See the six-word limit as a challenge to your creativity instead of an obstacle
* Find inspiration in reading other writers' six-word stories
* Revise, revise, revise
* Submit it!

Get all the goodness here.
