    This 6 word story is supposedly attributed to Hemingway.

    Can you write a 6 letter (or less) story?

        Methinks too much credit is given to this as a story.  There may be a story behind it but just because it's Hemingway, doesn't make it a story.  No offense, Ernie.

          It has a beginning, middle and end with a conflict and resolution... those were the parameters. The reader's perception and imagination fills in the details. I don't know that it was great... but the author considered it one of his best.

    My favorite stories have always been the ones that left a lot to the imagination.
    This story does exactly that smile
