    Talking Six word stories!

    Came across this on INTPc, and was wondering what our members could come up with.

    Wired challenged writers to create a story in 6 words. Wired 14.11: Very Short Stories

    Personal favourites:
    It cost too much, staying human. - Bruce Sterling

    Longed for him. Got him. Shit. - Margaret Atwood

    I'm dead. I've missed you. Kiss … ? - Neil Gaiman

    Gown removed carelessly. Head, less so. - Joss Whedon

    Let the stories roll!

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    the original six word story came from a writers' discussion (ya know, how snooty us writers get. haha). The challenge went to Ernest Hemingway. They betted that he couldn't write an evocative story in six words. His response?

    "Baby shoes. For sale. Never worn."
    You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
    They called me the hyacinth girl.
    Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
    Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
    Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
    Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
    Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

    --T.S Eliot, The Wasteland
