Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Blood is scarce. Draw with ink.

There is something very intimate about drawing, writing,and creating in general. Each artists/writer leaves a piece of themselves in everything they do. Each paint stroke, pen mark, word, and letter is a on pour of emotions, blood, sweat, and tears. If I could draw with my own blood I would so that I cold have the ultimate connection with my work, without any mediation. But, as one could imagine blood is scarce; therefore, I draw with ink.
