6-Word Short Story

Postby jmb2891 » 8 years ago

So, I was reading an article on Cracked today that had an entry where Ernest Hemingway either bet someone(s) or was bet by someone that he could(n't) write a story with just six words. He promptly wrote on a napkin, "For sale: baby shoes, never worn," and collected his money. I did a little googling and snopes.com has the status of this legend as undetermined, but it has inspired quite a few people regardless.

Here are a few from some recognizable names:

The Cracked article:

Anyway, I thought it's be fun to post a few here. I look forward to reading what we can come up with. :)

Here's mine:
Writer's block. Inspiration found! Bad story.

^Yeah, it is really hard. I thought yours was better than mine, especially since I typed that out right before I went to bed.

Here's another:
Civilization. I time traveled and created

"Weird fan couples. I love them."

Someone on deviantart made a wierd crossover fan couple drawing with Makoto Kino (aka Sailor Jupiter) from Sailor Moon, and Frylock from Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Weird and random as it is, I love it because I love both shows.
You're not a joke, you fit right in!
So shake it off, and give a grin. Don't be afraid to stand your ground! Crazy, noisy BIZARRE Town!

"Astro Boy! Mighty, but friendly robot."

I will have to admit that this is difficult. It looks so easy at first, but once you try to think of one, it's quite the opposite!
