    I love the addition of images for each story. I might have to use that idea next time around. My favorite of the bunch is “The Dinner Party.” I can’t imagine taking all the time to prepare and no one showing up. It’d probably be awhile before I talked to any of them again.


  2. Great stories! I like the mix of humor and sadness. My favorites are The Dinner Theater and The Dinner Party.

    Love them! My favorite was “Corporate Holiday Dinner.” The image fit perfectly too!

    Dinner theater and dinner party were my favs also for their duality.

    A great set of six word stories enhanced even more by some great pictures.

    There wasn’t a single one of these I didn’t like. You definitely have a way of packing a good story into a tiny amount of words. I loved the dinner party one the most—even though it was one of the saddest. Oh, and the corporate holiday one too—just because it was hilariously deadpan. Great work!
