I love the way that we can use new technologies to make learning and creativity more accessible. Six word story is a great example. The premise is self-explanatory and the storytelling takes place on Twitter.
The thing I like most about it is the parsimony of the format – you can’t be flabby or lazy and you quickly discover that writing fewer words is harder than spouting volumes. Scarcity breeds invention.
Have a go! As well as stetching your literary muscles, you might win a copy of JM Tohline’s new book in the process.
Simple things help us live life.
