On announcing the launch of Six Word Story, Doug said,

“I’m absolutely delighted to be sharing a brand-new collection of six word wonders. There was such an unexpected enthusiastic reaction to my first collection of tiny stories that I could resist putting together a new collection.

“I am particularly proud of the Paperback edition of Six Word Story which really presents these stories at their best. An ideal gift for someone who enjoys language and words, or for a busy person who wants to get in a quick bite of story.

“Even better, this book contains the shortlist entries from the Six Word Wonder contest 2020. The winner will be announced on publication day. But the Six Word Wonder Contest 2020 shortlist is a superb collection of writers. We had over 1000 entries which tells me there is a real appetite for people to get involved and write their own stories.

“Shortly, I will be announcing the launch of the 2021 Six Word Wonder contest. This time, I’m hoping to get over 10,000 entries. It’s a big ambition, and I have no idea what is possible. But you’ve got to dream.

“To sum up my feelings right now in Six Words, I would say, “Bursting with excitement? Order a mop.”

How would you sum up six word stories in one sentence?
