Short, Short, Short, Short Story


I was tagged by Pants to write a story in six words a la Hemingway, who beautifully and succintly invented the model with this:

For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn.


Mine is:

Shopping List: Whiskey. Plastic Bag. String.


I am tagging

Laurie
Orla
Twilight
Grannymar

  2. Oooooooooooooooh boy. i've seen this tag. I've avoided it. I am too wordy!

    But WWW, I will accept your challenge. stay tuned.

    As a journalist, I have always prided myself on my ability to write to length. We'll see if I can pass the ultimate test.

  3. Thank you WWW - I think!

    It'll probably be in Saturday's post - if I can get my head around it.

    Oh - your story and Hemingway's are both sad. Maybe there's something about this that brings on the melancholy - the one I have in mind is a bit sad too. :=(

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
