Six Sentences

by Barry Basden

Six Sentences is bullshit. Look at all the words in some of these stories. Ever heard of the semicolon? You can write a fucking novel in six sentences with enough semicolons. Face it; you need a word limit, or a semicolon limit. Ha, ha, fat chance; okay, now I'll wait six days for my rejection.


Barry Basden primarily writes 55-word microstories. Some have appeared in Bird and Moon, Pen Pricks, Drunk and Lonely Men and, yes, even 6S.
