The most creative responses to #4WordSadStory

August 17, 2015

Writing a story is easy. Anyone can do it.

But what if you had to limit your story to just four words—and to top it off, make it a sad story. It takes a dash of experience, hours of reading, and a bucketload of creativity to whip up a sad story with just four words.

I decided to issue this challenge on my social media profiles, and I’ve pulled out some of the best responses. Some sad, some strange, some that got too real, but all of them creatively sautéed.
