Six Word Story Challenge: The Weather: No Golf

Figments of a Dutchess:

Write a story about the WEATHER in just six words. Let a photo or image inspire you to write a story. Or first write the story, and then make or search for a picture to go with it.

‘Golf, Sunday?’

‘Weather permitting …’

It didn’t.

    I’ve never thought of you as a man of few words, Col, but your extremely short story really works so well. Was the photo taken in 2008?

    I dub thee Sir Succinct 😉
    mind you, personally the weather is never right for playing golf 😉


  3. Oi, Col, that is a real-life story in only six words. I love it! Well, I don’t love the fact that you weren’t able to play golf, but you know what I mean 😉

    You could always paint your ball a different colour so that you could spot it in the snow 😉

    Got soaked seeing student out tonight. 😀

      As in ‘wet’ rather than in ‘inebriated’. I trust!


      • gipsika says:

        LOL, rained-on. Inebriated would make a nice change. Good point there. I’ll have some sherry if you do too? I joined the Officially Insane and signed on for NaNoWriMo, probably only to see whether someone who can’t stick to a diet or program for three days, can endure a schedule of a whole month’s storytelling. 😀


        • colonialist says:

          I like the idea of the writing discipline it provides, but prefer trying to use such discipline towards getting further with unfinished business!


          • gipsika says:

            In principle I agree. But I think I need a restart, somehow my battery has run flat.

            Not to worry, I’ll still get around other necessary stuff – I write really fast, and for me it’s not really so much about the winning at all cost but about the curiosity if I can do it without compromising what I’m already doing.

    The manner in which our weather is behaving I am asking what the heck is golf 🙂
