Six-word Short Story Contest
Robert Hruzek at Middle Zone Musings has thrown down the gauntlet to the world to create the world's best six word short story. He links to a Wired article with examples from famous folks:
- “Failed SAT. Lost scholarship. Invented rocket.” – William Shatner
- “I couldn’t believe she’d shoot me.” – Howard Chaykin
- “The baby’s blood type? Human, mostly.” – Orson Scott Card
Here's what I came up with:
Flash. Bang. Duck. Cover. Happy
One dessert. Two spoons. Three shots.
The wedding has been cancelled. Again.
Give it a try yourself. It's harder than it looks!
