Quote of the day: “For sale: baby shoes. Never worn.” ~Earnest Hemingway
Song of the day: None
State of mind: Halfway there!
In my local paper there was an article about an online request for posters to submit six word stories based on the famous challenge issued to Earnest Hemingway. The results of which are my quote of the day. After reading the story, I did a search and found that this sort of limited word storytelling is a popular challenge. So, just like many blogs and online magazines before me I'm stealing the idea.
But why six words? Why not seven? Or just five? Maybe there was a five-word challenge but no one could do it. Makes me wonder what the shortest story is. How many words does it take to tell a complete tale? Maybe we’ll try that challenge later. I might even make this a semi regular feature… with alterations of course. But for now I’d like to stick with the traditional six words.
