If you were sitting at the round table having lunch with Ernest Hemingway and his friends and fellow writer’s, would you be willing to bet $10 that Hemingway couldn’t write a novel in six words? Well, apparently everyone at the table ponied up $10 each to find out.
Hemingway then took a napkin and wrote out six words and it was passed around the table until it came back to him and without objection he claimed his winnings.
Hemingway has been cited as one of the founders of flash fiction and his six word novel proves it as far as I’m concerned.
Please enjoy Hemingway’s six word novel!
No matter how many times I read this
I still get choked up everytime.

I think the old cliche, “A picture is worth a thousand words” is a big lie told by artist’s and their industry friends who want to make their works seem more important!
