Hemingway short short story

December 15, 2008 at 5:11 pm (writing) (, )

This is taken from Wikipedia:

In the 1920s, Hemingway bet his colleagues $10 that he could write a complete story in just six words. They paid up. His story: “For sale: Baby shoes, Never worn.” In a contest in Wired magazine inspired by Hemingway’s story, 33 authors recently submitted 6-word efforts.

I love it.

    I have long been impressed by those six-word stories, starting with the one by Hemingway.
