A Six Word Story You Say?

Frivalous, in case you can't tell
The sound of silence gently playing

Funny; was just thinking of Hemmingway’s

Can’t quite recall why now though

Anyway, that is beside the point

Via metafilter post (comments worth reading!)

A collection of very short stories

Each author with their six words

Serious, amusing, touching, insightful and more

Still, none close to matching Hemmingway

Well worth a read through though

Complete with online only bonus stories!

Oh, and my attempt at playing?

Hmmm. It’s harder than it looks

Still, I’ll give it a go:

“Why weep? It’s only a rose.”
