Dear Division 16,
It is said that Ernest Hemingway once bet a dinner party that he could tell a whole story in just 6 words.
Your assignment today is to write a 6 word short story.
Some call this genre “flash fiction” or “sudden fiction”.
Here are a couple of examples from your teachers:
“Eating candy, the dentist silently wept”
“Winning ticket, back pocket, laundry day”
Your response must be exactly 6 words long and tell a story. It must hint at a larger story that lies behind the words, or give clues to a bigger picture. It should leave your audience satisfied yet wondering.
Remember that you need to write a 6 word story, not just write a 6 word sentence.
I look forward to your responses!
