    Life Biography in Six Words.

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by Crazy Ivan, May 31, 2007.

    Legend has it that Ernest Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only SIX WORDS.
    The result was "For sale: baby shoes, never used."
    (http://smithmag.net/sixwords/)

    Here's an interesting and challenging activity. Try to compose YOUR story (the story of YOU) in EXACTLY six words (no more, no less).

    Mine is: Learn the rules, then break 'em.
