A friend posted a notice on a writers' loop. Route 66, a new print magazine, is looking for short stories of exactly 66 words in length for their premiere issue. The link is here.
That notice reminded me of an incident from Ernest Hemingway's life that I thought I'd share.
Hemingway once accepted a bar bet for $10 after companions wagered he couldn't write a short story in six words or less.
"For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn."
Hemingway won the bet.
