This is how four writers pass the time (and stay connected) during their isolation. We realize we’ve slipped a bit from stories into conversation in 6-word increments; we’re giving ourselves grace given the circumstance. Join us by adding your 6-word stories in the comments.

Going nowhere, more slowly than ever.
The world is in a chrysalis.
Every day’s stumper: What’s for lunch?
Awake half the night solving—nothing.
Having good days requires sheer willpower.
Coveting my kids’ weather. Also youth.
Outdated reminder: Pack for Austin trip.
“Dr. Death” distracts from real thing.
Minecraft elbow. The pain is real.
Plumb out of six-word stories.
Swapped Bogs for wellies. That’s something.
Apparently we eat lots of granola.
Finished my stash-busting corona cardigan.
Resourcefulness ceases to deliver same satisfaction.
Knitting is easier than not sleeping.
Absence makes the heart grow weary.
Puts on a dress. Doesn’t help.
Cowboy boots will make the difference.
A little sunshine would be nice.

Is skinny-dipping in tub even possible?
Perhaps it’s a matter of intent?

Today the day to stay abed?
Speaking for me: healthy, so fine.
“Happy are the kind and compassionate.”

In the woods, everything’s all right.

Watching spring unfurl before my eyes.
Brene, we’re all at 20 percent.
Missing everything, everyone; screens are inadequate.
Bodhi, doe pointed at each other.
