Free Skate

Last week, I had a list of six word stories. This week I thought I'd share where I got the idea. The science and writing website IO9 had a thing where they asked their commenters to provide their own six word stories. Here are the best of the day, and the original call for entries. Just check the comments for everyone's attempts. They're all great.

IO9 is one of my favorite sites. In addition to getting my True Blood, Game of Thrones, Sleepy Hollow, and Doctor Who recap fixes, they also occasionally have great tips for writers. Check out their 10 Types of Writers' Block (and How to Overcome Them). I've been suffering from 4 and 5 lately, but I'm trying to push through it.

Speaking of Sleepy Hollow - if you're able to follow my train of thought - I keep trying to convince people to watch this show, but I have a hard time justifying it. The best I can say is that it's a great show to watch with your brain only half working. If you think too hard about it, the whole thing falls apart. All I can say is Romantic Lead Face:

and Headless Horseman with a machine gun:

Anybody else watch this show?


  1. I've watched Sleepy Hollow and found it pretty good, just not compelling enough to get me to tune in faithfully. I do agree about the Face. :)
