Six Word Stories took DaVerse Lounge by storm last Friday evening as 88 attendees stopped by the Six Word Stories station and wrote down their personal tales in half-a-dozen words.
We were blown away by the engagement, and the thoughtful stories. Here’s a small sampling of the beauties we enjoyed:
I’m under construction and never happier!
Your melody, my harmony, our symphony.
I am more than six words.
Organized chaos in one beautiful dream.
I can’t is not an option.
Follow your heart, free your mind.
Amazing stuff, huh? Here at Big Thought we thank Communications Manager Pholesha Johnson for doing the research that led her to suggest the Six Word Stories phenomenon as a DaVerse Lounge self-expression exercise. The even greater news is that Six Word Stories will be implemented at all DaVerse Works middle and high school poetry clubs. Also, these same middle and high school poetry clubs will be offered the national Six Word Stories project curriculum.

All of this Six Word Stories excitement spilled onto the Big Thought staff, too. We got into the six word spirit. Here are the gems we came up with:
What’s thought about is brought about.
Determined not to cry, she laughed.
The cemetery brings it all back.
Wisdom shared by age is golden.
Whose lips do I adore more?
Art will always be restriction free.
Love whatever arises, no matter what.
Insert witty comment, give me credit.
Love yourself first, then love others.
A pub in London was destiny.
Memories of loved ones carry me.
Good communication keeps the employees happy.
DaVerse Lounge – share space, be embraced.
You should laugh, love, cry everyday.
Shower me in happiness and love.
Need to be fearless and stronger.
Escaped the Friday Night Lights effect.
Life is About Refocusing and Recharging.
DaVerse Lounge thanks TACA, Dallas Mavericks, and State Farm for their generous support.
