Six Word Story: Directions

 

 

CAN YOU DESCRIBE YOUR NOVEL IN SIX WORDS?

 

Your task is to create a six-word story of your novel (think of it as a six-word summary). See this page for some examples of six-word stories based on famous novels.

 

You decide what words and punctuation to use and what tone you want your six-word novel to express.

 

Ask yourself these questions:
Is your novel mysterious, dramatic, funny, or serious? What is the theme or main idea of the novel? These questions will help you draft ideas for your six-word creation.
