Write A Story in 6 Words
« on: April 22, 2012, 04:08:15 PM »
I love Ernest Hemingway. I just love minimalism. I love writing a lot with the least amount possible, so here is a way to rack the brain and finish a story, in a short, meagre six words.

- Write a story in 6 to 24 words!!!

Once, Hemingway's friends betted him he couldn't write a story in 6 words. Here's what he came up with.

Quote
For sale: baby shoes, never used.

They paid up.

So whenever your bored or inspired, drop in your story here and let the madness ensue as the readers try to guess the meaning, and the fun as we figure out the whole picture. What do you think?

Wow that's a lot  of stories...

@ Coryn Farewell to Arms? >.> Yup i haven't. What was wrong with it?

And here's mine:

The apprentice swordsman was orphaned viciously.
He first failed in his revenge,
then foolishly dealt with a devil.
Revenge successful, he lost his soul.

it was terrible. that's what. there was no real plot to speak of. no conflict resolution. you hate all of the characters by the end. and it was boring as hell to read.
