Six Word Stories

Hemmingway, rather famously, said in an interview, that the shortest story he had even written was only six words: ‘Baby’s shoes for sale. Never worn’. This is an interesting concept as from those mere six words, you know exactly, or at least have a good idea, what is going on. With that in mind, I have been doing my own recently. Here are a handful.

Third world problems, first world guilt

Drunken mistake, a beautiful baby boy

Tarnished engagement ring in pawn shop

Poppies survive the cracked, war-torn earth

Turns out the gun was loaded

Hemmingway is turning in his grave
