Six words every day - The Hemingway Challenge

The great author Ernest Hemingway was challenged to write a story in just six words.

The result?

For sale, baby shoes, never worn.

He regarded it as his greatest.


Do a little storytelling and come up with your own six word story.

just six short little declarative words.


A handful of my own six word memoirs:

bring back
the wounded
with heart

lifelines are
never straight
and narrow

the cat
with one
life left

shared love
with you
my soulmates

but to
live in
an anemome

airport terminal
flight departs
heart shatters

little prince
grows into
 kind king

my bed
turned ocean
underwater love


Make certain to visit those of others over at:

These days,
Nothing's better
Than everything.

I figure if it's only six words, it should have more than one meaning... :)

Ah, nothingness... I couldn't agree with you more. Thanks x
