SixContest #86: #SixScaryWords

Ghouls, goblins, and ghosts alike are counting down the days to Halloween. Of course, in 2016, there may be more to fear than the supernatural. For SixContest #86, share what keeps you awake at night in Six Words. Is it a personal recurring nightmare or that problem you can’t quite solve? Whether it’s the state of your social life or the state of the nation — tell us what terrifies you in exactly Six Words.

Your Six Words can include a backstory (we love reading them), but please post only one entry per comment.

Remember to tag us and include #SixScaryWords when posting your Six Words to Twitter and Instagram!


EXTENDED! This SixContest runs now through Monday, October 31 at 3PM EDT. Submit your entries in the comments below or on our social media pages: (remember to tag @sixwords) | | |
