Can You Tell A Story In…

It’s Thursday and your new five-word challenge is here. Last week, I wanted to know what you thought about SHOES. This week, I want you to come up with a PLOT. So can you tell a story in five words, using the word PLOT in it somewhere?

Here are your thoughts on SHOES from last week:


My shoes are my life.

Shoes can change your life.

Possible, with the right shoes.

Take anything but my shoes.

Kim Smyth:

I’m a shoe freak, yo!

Sparkly shoes, flip-flops, whatever!

No more platform shoes, unfortunately.

Sensible, but stylish, shoe love!


I don’t like wearing shoes.

Buying school shoes – the pain!

Where’s the other bloomin’ shoe?

High heeled shoes are punishment.

I buy shoes for comfort!

Christine Mallaband-Brown:

My shoe is too small

My shoe hurts my toes

I bought one new shoe

I’m wearing my new shoe

New shoe causes no pain…

Thoughts on a shoe theme…

EDC Writing:

Lost shoes. Sole walking home.

Trent’s World:

Ouch! Damn blister! Damn shoes…

Paul Mastaglio:

Shoes are made for walking.

That’s just what shoes do.

Shoes to walk over you.

Kim Blades Writing:

Shoes are clothing for feet.

I don’t like wearing shoes.

High-heeled shoes cripple me.

Tight shoes can cause bunions.

Feet without shoes can breathe.


Shoes invite two step moments.


Shake off shoes. Tootsies breathe!

Changing shoes for changing times.

Feet count. Not fancy shoes!

Furry shoes sale! Brand: Hobbit.

Rhen Laird:

Old feet rebel against shoes.

And something different from Richmond Road:

Shoes upon the road below

Protect me from the snow

Shoes are made for warmth

That’s something that I know

Shoes they make the man

Socks they make the heat

Sure, I love my shoes

But here’s something I’ll repeat

Love is good for love

It’s something of a treat

What’s the good of love

If you’ve got cold feet?

  6. Life’s plot always seems obscure.
    Writer’s block halts my plot.
    Plots direct the story line.
    Characters and plots are intertwined.
    Epic stories have numerous plots.
