The Dirty Origins of the Literary Genres:
Fun with Six-Word Stories


Literary Nonsense- Siblings, Poetry and Comedy's copulate encounter.

Smut- Drama injects Prose with dirty needle.

Mystery- Prose meets Drama behind the shed.

Comedy- Drama slowly gets undressed, Prose laughs.

Poetry-  Drama attempts rhythmic technique in bed.

Fantasy- Prose decides that length does matter.

SciFi- Prose dreams of Drama's rhythmic technique.

Romance- Prose asks Drama for bedtime story.

Action- Drama gets aggressive, learning of ex.
Following the romantic and often tragic sexual exploits of literature's longstanding couple, Drama and Prose, and the children that they have brought into this world.

Thanks! I'd like to find a way to further build it from just being a bunch of six word stories, but I'm not organized enough yet to make an attempt at editing it. :)

Thanks! I guess what makes it fun is that it was an impromptu yesterday morning. :)

I love just waking up with a good idea. It makes me feel somewhat productive, though I really haven't been able to seriously sit and write for quite some time.

There are also non-fiction categories, now that I think of it.

Western and horror spring to mind as missed genres. You could also try sub-genres, or you could try eras like gothic, romantic, post modern, etc.

This is hilarious and incredible. Poetry's my art, so that's definitely my favorite six-word origin, but all of them are great :)

Thanks a lot! I had some fun with this, this morning (sick day). :) Got the idea from a piece a did a few days ago and turned into the #SixWordStories prompt group. Sadly, things are going to get weird when smart readers like yourself, start questioning me on the family tree of literature. Soon, I'll need to find a plot twist that explains why Poetry (who should be the male lover and father to the genres) is an oops baby, and why Prose is sleeping around with who should be her son, Drama. This.....is going to take some time. :D
