Legend has it...

that Ernest Hemingway was challenged to create an entire short story in six words. Hemingway wrote, "For sale: baby shoes, never worn." Thus creating a new genre of short storytelling - the six-word story.

This may be just an urban legend. However, Hemingway was known for his clean, restrained writing style. Which makes it conceivable that he's the author.

In celebration of this great storyteller and larger-than-life persona, we would like to invite you to become an author of your own 6 Word Story. It can be humorous, heartbreaking, a memoir, science fiction, or any other kind of genre.

We recommend pouring a glass of Hemingway Rye for inspiration, sharpening a pencil, and allowing for at least 15 minutes of thoughtful contemplation.

Are you up for the challenge?
