A six-word story inspired by Hemingway

Legend has it that Ernest Hemingway won a $10 bet with friends by writing the six-word story, “For sale: baby shoes. Never worn.” Nobody can verify whether this event took place or not, but I like to believe it did and was inspired to write my own six-word story:

For Sale: One Typewriter. Never used.

  1. I’ve heard the Hemingway story many times, but never knew any of this background about it. I’ve since read a couple of articles, and it seems nobody can say with certainty that he wrote the story. I’m going to say he did and keep the legend alive.
