4 thoughts on “Six Word Stories by Doug Weller – the new book in the 6 Word Wonder series”
Though I have tried my hand at writing micro-stories, flash fiction and short stories, I am a novice when it comes to Six-Word-Stories.
My question is : Are there some platforms where I can contribute such stories more frequently?
I am eagerly awaiting your answer.

New to flash fiction. Wondering if a two-word hyphenated phrase counts as one word or two?
Usually, is okay for modifiers to be treated as one word. Judges decision is final of course.
