Six Word Story #1 – Scars

According to legend Hemingway once wrote a story in just six words:

“For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

and called it his best work.

It’s not known if the story is true or not or if Hemingway is the one who wrote “For sale: baby shoes, never worn”

However, the story itself has continued to inspire people to attempt to write their own six word stories.

There are websites, books and contests devoted to the idea.

In the spirit of those who have gone before me in this endeavor I am going to attempt to offer up a six word story now and then here at Grace Rules.  I’ve tried this a few times and it is pretty hard.  The challenge is to come up with six words that create a vivid enough picture for the reader to immediately be able to imagine a story.

Feel free to add your own in the comments.
