Hemingway was famous for his six-word story: For sale: baby shoes; never worn. I decided to take up the six-word challenge and write some myself. I'm definitely not as eloquent as Hemingway, but I had fun giving it a whirl. Here are some I wrote, but they just don't hit the right emotional chord. I'll keep working on it.
Wife left, jackpot won, hardly treasure.
Procrastinator’s promise: I'll live for tomorrow.
Redeemed souls can always beat cancer.
Abandoned, then adopted, loved today, forevermore.
Amazing grace; how sweet the sound.
Flower salesman got fired, received flowers.
Young boy slew giant with rock.
Gave birth today, wept, popped balloons.
Daughter's suicide was murder via email.
Sleepers, 9/11 was an inside job.
Poison ivy not mentioned in brochure!
Jesus: liar, lunatic, Lord? Resurrection picked.
No brilliance there, but it was a fun creative exercise. Even if you're not much of a writer, you can still spin out a six-word thingy. It's easy, quick and fun. Give it a shot.
