50 Words from the 6 Words: Hatter’s Legacy

After yesterday’s Alice story I couldn’t stop there but will stop at the 50. A little research had to go into this but it was worth it and more difficult. Trying to stay within 50 words and tell a story that requires more I feel is out of depth. But I gave it a shot and now have a separate notebook with the makings of a short story.

This was a HUGE accomplishment and one that I am really proud of regardless if it’s right or wrong. In writing nothing really is right or wrong…well maybe except for spelling. Please try the 6 word story challenge. Did it help inspire your writing into a larger project? Let me know in the comments and I promise I will get social media up for my blog. One step at a time.

Hatter’s Legacy


“…happy summer days.” Alice closed the book.
“Goodnight Hatter.”
“Mommy, where’d I get red hair from?”
“Your father’s side.”
“But dad’s pictures show black hair!”
“Hatter, your father dyed it protesting your aunt’s ruling. Now sleep my love.”
Alice left, remembering the beheading of her husband ordered by his sister.
