Six Word Story

Out of shear luck, I came across a unique page  on the McGill University website.  Its called One Life Six Words.

The jist of it is this:  Hemingway once wrote, “For sale. Baby shoes.  Never worn.”  He claimed that it was a six word story.  How it is widely accepted as a literary form.  McGill has taken this literary form and has allowed its students and faculty as well as anyone else to write a six word story and submit it for all to see.

So for example, someone wrote, “Everything my father said was true.”  Someone else wrote, “When bombs fell, I found myself.”

To me, this is such an amazing concept.  I discovered this a few nights ago and I wished I had found out about this long before.  I just find it amazing that one is able to tell a tale in only six words.  Some of the stories on the site are so profound, its amazing how a few words can have such great impact.

I thought about it, and I think I am going to employ this literary form on my blog from time to time.  Lets see how far I can take this.

Here is the link to the McGill website I was talking about.
