"For Sale: Baby Shoes. Never used." Ernest Hemingway once wrote that in response to a challenge from a friend to compose a story in just six words. Hemingway said later that he thought it was the best thing that he had ever written.
Wired magazine recently picked this up and made it into an article by asking contemporary authors to give it a try.
Feel free to write your six word stories in the comments.
Here's some I came up with:
Box said blonde. Liars, it's red!
Turned and ran. Bullet was faster.
Good guy. Bad guy. Pretty girl.
Log splitter stopped. Four fingers now.
He liked boys but dated girls.
War didn't end, was only adjourned.
His eyes closed. My eyes opened.
