Six Sentence Sunday

A simple concept: share six sentences and try to hook readers.

Here are the basics: for the details, see their FAQ page:

FAQs

How do I play?

Easy. Pick six (6) sentences from anything you like (it can be from a Work in Progress (WiP), something you recently sold, something you hope to sell or even something already under contract and available for purchase – and don’t worry, Six Sentence Sunday is for published AND unpublished writers). Then post them on your blog on Sunday. That’s all there is to it!

How do I get my link added to the Sunday post?

A post will be live from 6 pm (EST) Tuesday to 11:59 (EST) Saturday for you to fill out the information and submit. That post will then be removed, the information collected and it will go live at 9am EST each Sunday. Please note, it’s not a requirement to participate each week. Places are on a first come, first served basis. Also, commenting on the sign up post does not actually sign you up for that week. Just follow the link provided. By adding your name to the link list each week, you agree to abide by the rules found on this page.

Am I required to link to other contributors?

No. A link back to the site here would be great to let people know where you heard about the idea, but you aren’t required to list the week’s posters on your post. The Six Sunday website is the “anchor” site.

When is my post required to be posted?

Before 9 am (EST) each Sunday – that’s when the Six Sunday post goes live (remember that overseas folks!). Six Sentence Sunday administrators will check each link and your post is not active at 9 am (EST), you will be deleted from the week’s post. There are no exceptions to this rule. Please have a little courtesy, if you sign up–post. Most blogging platforms today have a scheduling feature that allows you to schedule a post in advance without having to actually be anywhere near the computer. If you’re not sure how to do this, feel free to email and ask us–we’d be happy to help!

Get your work out there!

    • Do it! What have you got to lose? And they seem to be rom heavy of late, so they need more dark fiction.
