This Is More My Speed

There is another writers' contest which is the complete opposite of the deadly NaNoMoWri contest.

It's called the Short Short Short Short Short Short Fiction Competition. You must write a story in only six words. Ernest Hemingway was able to write a heartbreaking story in merely six words: "For Sale. Baby Shoes. Never Worn."

The competition closes at midnight on December 31, 2006.

My short story is:

Ambitious Wallstreeter will work for food.

  • off topic: I have my blog set up to email me when I get comments and when you comment I get a weird delivery failure notice message. Do you have your blog set to an old email?

  • I got rid of that email address. I didn't hook up my other address. It's sjbjlewis@comcast.net
