Six Word Stories

A six word story is exactly what it says...a complete story told in six words.  It should have a beginning, a middle, and an end just as any other story form.  It was first made famous by Ernest Hemmingway, who famously wrote "For sale:  baby shoes, never used".

It is difficult not to turn them into poetry, which is why I include them here on this blog.

Heart's desire hastily spent.  Bitter feelings.

April passions.  November rain.  Never again.

A life considered carefully was discarded.

End the world.  I'm with her.
