Ever heard of a six word story? It's basically a story summed up in six words. Hemingway came up with an excellent example:"For sale: baby shoes. Never worn." Orson Scott Card's take was this: "The baby's blood type? Human, mostly." There was even a book published recently called "Not Quite What I was Planning", which is a bunch of six-word memoirs. They include gems like "Extremely responsible, secretly longed for spontaneity." and "Painful nerd kid, happy nerd adult."
What kind of six-word stories can you come up with? They can be about your life, a story you're writing, or anything at all!! Here are a couple of mine, just off the cuff. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
