The story goes like this:
Ernest Hemingway was given a challenge to write a complete story with six words.
This style of writing is known as “flash fiction.”
I am a huge fan of short form poetry (check out my poem, “A Good Poem” as a starting point on my approach to short form poetry).
Hemingway nailed it. He told the story with the words he didn’t write:
“For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn.”
