    Apparently Hemingway wrote the shortest story ever written. It was only six words:

    "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."
    - Hemingway

    He said it was his best work. XD I absolutely love it and think it's amazing.
    I found a website where some other authors were asked to try it, and these are some of my favourites:

    Longed for him. Got him. ****.
    - Margaret Atwood

    Corpse parts missing. Doctor buys yacht.
    - Margaret Atwood

    Starlet sex scandal. Giant squid involved.
    - Margaret Atwood

    Gown removed carelessly. Head, less so.

    - Joss Whedon

    TIME MACHINE REACHES FUTURE!!! … nobody there …

    - Harry Harrison

    I thought it'd be really fun to try write our own. Only six words. Any ideas?
