I appreciate the challenge of writing flash fiction. I appreciate the challenge of writing poetry. But to tell a story in six words…?
And then I read the story that started it all. Hemingway wrote what he felt was his greatest story in only six words:
For sale: baby shoes, never worn.Absolutely stunning, isn’t it? We may not be Hemingway, but let’s give it a try. Tell me a story of love or of heartbreak in precisely six words.
I’ll go first with the story of my first love:
I loved him. He was married.And the story of my current love:
She will look stunning in white.And a third just for fun:
Give me your heart or else.
What can you tell me in six words?
*As an added bonus, the first six readers to send me a Six Word Story will receive an e-copy of my delicious menage story, Cunning Little Vixens. Everyone who sends one in will also be entered to win an e-copy of a truly incredible anthology called Coming Together: With Pride. The clock's ticking, so get those stories in!*
