  1. I have to agree Diane, the headliners only attempt a play on words.
    I think to weave a story in six words you need something deeper to invoke an emotional epiphany, a sense of awe and a resounding bell in the readers mind. It’s not what is said but what a reader can imagine, and discover there is more than one possible conclusion.
    Must try harder, thanks for commenting.


  2. The middle one is the story because it gives you enough information to fill in the blanks and weave a mystery and a murder etc. the other two are, in my humble opinion, just headlines – statements of fact rather than titillating hints of fiction.
