Welcome to the Big Top. Behold six, six-word tall tales of circus thrills, spills, kills, and more.
In other words, I wrote six little, six-word stories based on the word prompt CIRCUS, provided by Adam Ickes. Check it out for yourself. He gives you a choice of six words, you pick one, and write up to 10, 6-word stories based on that word. Read the other stories here:
