Ernest Hemingway once won a bet by crafting a six-word short story, that can make people cry. Here it is.
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why Hemingway is one of (if not THE) most powerful authors I’ve ever studied.
I remember this.
I don’t get it….oh….OH.
My English teacher had us write 6-word short stories using this beautiful piece of writing as a template.
Mine was: “He hung from his boyfriend’s belt.”
Is it bad that she cried?
