Only. Just. Six. Words. Right. Here.

Flashing In the Gutters forwarded me to this:
Short Short Short Short Short Short Fiction Competition!
... I am pleased to announce the 'Short Short Short Short Short Short Fiction Competition'. You will notice that there are 6 'shorts 'altogether, and that is exactly how many words your story should be! It’s not as crazy as it sounds. After all Ernest Hemingway proved it is possible to create a story in six words that can be moving and sad, with the following: “For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn.”

So therein lies the task, to create, in 6 words only, a story of some kind. The story can be any subject, any genre. As long as it is just six words (and all untitled)!

All entries should be emailed to me here with 'Short Short Short Short Short Short Fiction' in the subject line of the email by midnight (GMT) 31 December 2006. Only one entry per person as well please.

Details at the above link.
