Writing Exercise: Micro Stories

  • Prof. Magnus
    Participant

    There is a story about Ernest Hemingway, which says he was bet ten dollars he could not write a story in six words. Accepting the challenge, he penned on a napkin the following:

  • Ooh interesting challenge….
    I did a few.

  • Captain Dermut
    Participant

    “Two eggs, one glass of milk, a dishcloth to close, flames burn love”

    “Waiting for nothing, something to hope for received as deserved and nothing more”

    “Friendship is scrap metal with a thin layer of chrome”
    (OK, that last one ain’t mine but a line from a dutch song from the ’80’s I translated, but I think it fits.)

  • Capt. A Neptune
    Participant

    – He waited, she didn’t come back.

    He came, he saw, he fainted.
