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.
