Six word stories

Recommended Posts

Ok, the game is to make up a six word story. Can be funny, serious, whatever. I heard of this game in connection with a story about Hemingway, who was asked at a bar to come up with one. It is still may favorite six word story and my favorite Hemingway story. Try to top it:

For sale; baby shoes; never used.

To be sure, that's way better than most of Hemingway's 'we're such a lost generation and I'm a whiney bitch' crap. In fact, it's a great six word story. It's all about hope dashed, which is probably a majority of stories, but it also encapsulates the tension between certain death and the hope implicit in reproduction.

Must ponder further - very little's new.
