The other day John Zimmer and I were walking down the streets of Berlin. Flashes of rhetoric, thoughts and stories.
John reminded me of the shortest short story of my hero Ernest Hemingway. Apparently, a friend had challenged him. Hemingway was supposed to come up with a short story which only consisted of six words.
Hemingway loved micro fiction. He came up with this story:
“For sale: Baby shoes, never worn.”
Inspired by John and Ernest, I invite you to join the
fiction collection on Twitter.
I’m convinced we will come up with great stories – fantastic six word stories.
Btw, read the 6 word memoirs by authors obscure and famous and enjoyed it thoroughly…
and there are more books in the series.
