Six Word Stories

I just finished reading a great post over at Nothing But Bonfires.

But what I loved about the post the most wasn’t the subject area (although it was a truly great post).  It was her quotation of a six-word story.  Allegedly some invention of Ernest Hemingway, or something.

Anyway, you have to write a story in six words.

I immediately thought of two excellent things to do with this.  First, write six-word stories for celebrities and make you guess who’s who.  The other was to stage one of those old-fashioned writing contests like I used to.  Way back when.

But first, my own six words: Happy family life.  Still, he blogs.

And a celebrity:

Marries younger woman.  Rumor: a beard.

A Toblerone for the first one to get it right.
