Six Word Story:
Deep breath. Eyes closed. Mouth shut.
I have no idea. I genuinely have no idea what this six word story is about. Or why I decided to write it. I am assuming that I was inspired by something I read or watched. Maybe a movie I saw. I don’t know. What do you think this SWS is about? Let me know in the comments.
As I mentioned earlier, I am going to be posting drafts for most of this week because I am recovering from a nasty flu. To be honest, it’s not the worst flu I’ve ever had. But I haven’t been sick in so long it has really taken me down. I have been feeling awful for the last few days. I think yesterday was the worst. But I slept for like ten hours and now I’m feeling slightly better. I have more energy today but my throat is still hurting like a lot.

It’s so cold. Think warm thoughts.
That’s how I feel with this fever.
Your story is about a young girl who is trying to escape her captors by hiding under the pier…
Ooh very interesting. That may actually be it because I watched a horror movie a little like that and that may have inspired the six word story.
It feels like you’re about to dive, very deep. Physically or metaphorically – I like it, very thought provoking.
Thanks so much. It definitely could be.
Deep breath, eyes close , mouth shut. That’s totally what pranayama is about 😛.
Hey Pooja, please take care. Sending you some positive vibes. I hope you recover well. Please don’t stress. 💐
Thanks so much. Haha that’s true! 😂
It’s a type of yoga practice. It focus on breathing. It means control of breath.
Thanks Pooja. She is taking a deep breath. Anita
Thank you so much.
This story at present is my condition post accident. That’s it. Hope you recover quickly.
Thank you and hope you recover too.
The thing about SWS is that it is open to so many interpretations. This can be someone who’s meditating or even someone who is on survival mode. I hope you’ll feel better soon.
That’s so true. Everyone interprets each story differently. Thanks so much.
Exactly. The pleasure is all mine 😊
A girl escaping from world’s cruelty!
Yes it could be!
So close, so far, in thoughts.
Your words say to me…. Relax… Take a moment for yourself…. Make it about you…. 🤗Take care🤍
Thank you and take care too 🤗
8 billion people, but only you.
Aw that’s sweet.
I think it’s about going into water. You take a deep breath, close your eyes (I think), and your mouth.
Glad to hear you’re a bit better!
Hmm yeah it could definitely be about that. Thank you!
Yeesh. I hope you’re back to 100% soon, hun, being sick is the worst.
Take it in. Let it go.
Thanks so much. It is absolutely the worst and being sick after so long just makes it even worse.
It’s like being kicked when you’re down. You do all the right things to take care of yourself and it seems like nothing works.
I’ll keep you in my thoughts. Feel better. ❤️
Yeah that’s it. Thank you so much ❤️
First the SWS reminds me of meditation process then it also brings the nostalgia we face in this toxic society where one could ended up taking a deep breath with eyes closed and mouth shut. Kind of looking for escape from reality. six short words but can brainstorm bunch of ideas on it.
Yeah it can work for both meditation and for an escape from society. I love that about six word stories. They can be interpreted in so many ways.
I read this as an homage to mindfulness…live in the moment, immerse yourself in your surroundings without disturbing them.
That’s wonderful, I love that interpretation.
This is the story of a girl who is shutting out the world to focus on something intense.
Get well soon Pooja.
It very well could be. Thanks so much.
Drowning and stabbed, she sang sadly.
Mother killed enemies drowning precious children.
Life, drowning hope, sinks the day.
The day you drowned I leapt.
I can’t drink if you drowned.
Deadly waters made me miss you.
Six words can make a splash?
Parting waters are Shakespeare’s sweet sorrows.
Salty tales on fresh waters persevere.
[I guess I can’t write a story in six words nor a billion.(don’t feel inspired)]
I am drowning in SWS thanks to your comments haha. Thanks for leaving them.
Wow, those are great albeit depressing lol.
My interpretation, deep breath because it was her last. So yeah, eyes shut and hence mouth sealed close!
Hmm very interesting take!
Yeah, that’s the first thing that came into my mind after reading the story.
Hope you feel better soon. Eat, drink, and rest well. Flu can knock the best of us. Not sure what that one means however the picture does a good job painting one explanation 🙂
Thank you so much, yes I couldn’t agree more. This flu really got the best of me but I’m recovering slowly.
It’s about surviving. Hope you feel better.
Thanks so much and I think so too.
That’s interesting. A vague story with a lot of deep meaning open to interpretation. I love this one.
Thank you so much.
lol…Oh Pooja. It’s been a while. I had to stop and think wtf is a SWS? lol. My brain is recovering from a failed attempt at NaNo. Just getting back at it after doing so much. Hope that flu doesn’t linger.
Here’s my SWS:
Relief encapsulated her. Silence. Finally peace.
Lol it’s definitely been a while. Sorry to hear that, but sometimes writing daily does end up leading to burn out. That happens to me sometimes too.
Thank you and love your six word story.
reminds me of sitting in the dentist’s chair (before the visit starts) … yikes! i so hope you are feeling better soon!
Thank you so much, I’m a bit better! Haha oof I hate going to the dentist.
I think your 6 word story is a message to not talk with a sore throat and keep sleeping till you feel better!!!
Haha well I have been doing just that! 😂
Your clients must miss you😱
Haha I’m sure they do 😂😉
NAHHHHHH.. not MUCH hahahahah! xo
The beginning of a thriller with the narrator launching the tale.
Feel better soon!! 💜
Thanks so much, I feel better now!
Good story considering you’re sick. I believe that’s what your story means. That you are sick and that you need to breathe and take it easy. Feel better.
Thanks and that could easily be it. Thank you.
Beautiful six word story❤️
Thank you 😊
This story made me think of deep breaths to calm nerves, like right before walking on stage for a performance 😤
Ooh very interesting, I hadn’t thought of that.
This makes me think of a good night sleeping with no interruptions or bad dreams.
That’s a nice way to think of it.
I hope you feel better girlie!
I am, thank you!
Wish you a speedy recovery. I was having some throat pain two weeks ago and I took Echinacea, which helps build better immunity… Who knows, maybe it is just some placebo that can make one feel that one’s getting better.
Thanks so much. I feel like most medications are kind of placebos. At least anti-viral ones since viruses don’t really have cures and you just kind of have to let them run their course.
So true. Haha, wish you a great recovery and back to your self again.
Thanks so much.
Get well soon! I really like this one. It makes me think of anxiously jumping into deep water.
“Rising. Emerging. Dripping. Gasping. Seeing. Living.”
Thank you so much. Wow, love your SWS too, I like how well it works with mine.
I’m not the best with prompts so I tend to go with direct replies. I’m glad you liked it.
Direct replies are fun to read too!
My first thought for this SWS was reimagining myself yesterday settling into bed feeling the exhaustion of work settle in and peacefully drifting off to sleep (which I did!). 😴
Oh nice, hope you had a good rest 😴
I did indeed. 😊
Simple, but profoundly relatable. 🎉
Thank you so much 😊
