Like. Love. Hurt. Hate. Forgive. Forget.

How's that? Made it up on the spot

I've recently come across what is called a "6 word story" which has been attributed to Ernest Hemingway and the story goes like this. For sale:baby shoes, never worn.

Can you guys figure out, what the story is actually saying?
Do you think it counts as a "story"
Can you write a 6 word story of your own?

my personal definition for what makes a good story is something that evokes an emotion, imagination or discussion. while the six word story is short it uses the readers own experiances to build on it. At no point is a childs death mentioned but we automically create this scenerio. personally i imagine a emtionally drained parent flogging the shoes to get rid of everything that reminds them of their lost child. however it could easily just be the parent bought the wrong size or didnt like the clothes ect.

on the subject of short stories there are several two sentance only horror storys floating around online which are ok

such as

I begin tucking him into bed and he tells me, “Daddy check for monsters under my bed.” I look underneath for his amusement and see him, another him, under the bed, staring back at me quivering and whispering, “Daddy there’s somebody on my bed.”

or

Don’t be scared of the monsters, just look for them. Look to your left, to your right, under your bed, behind your dresser, in your closet but never look up, she hates being seen.

infact the shortest published horror story is called "knock" and is simply

"The last man on Earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock on the door..."
