Tell a story in six words

I thought I would share this. Great piece in The New Yorker. It’s all about six word stories. There’s a book out at present. The article is a book review. It’s written in six word sentences:

Six words can tell a story. That’s a new book’s premise, anyway. “Not Quite What I Was Planning.” A compilation of teeny tiny memoirs. The forebear, it’s assumed, is Hemingway. (Legend: he wrote a miniature masterpiece. “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Slightly sappy, but a decent sixer.)

It is well worth checking out. Please feel free to comment here. But stick to the style please. Six words only in comments too.
