Stories told in just six words

Can you tell a story in just six words?

Ernest Hemingway was challenged to do just that in the 1920s, and it resulted in what he considered to be his best work: “For sale: Baby shoes. Never worn.”

I was inspired by Hemingway’s challenge, and thought that a website all about super short stories would be pretty cool – so I made one! Six Word Stories is a daily-updated collection of the best six word stories — written by famous authors, amateurs from around the world, and submitted by fans of the site. It also has its own Twitter Feed.
