Very short stories

By Sparky | October 25, 2006

Wired News did a cool write up on Very Short Stories that I rather fancy. They took Hemingway’s famous six word story (“For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”) and challenged technologists and writers of a modern era to come up with their own. Check out the article, and a few tries of my own:

Did you bring the backup? Nope.

Will children bring us enough successes?

His life before him, mostly nothing.

Slipping further from the edge, reaching desperately.

We have done far too much.

Eagerly awaiting the redux, long coming.

Emphatic paper food was our downfall.

Can you come up with one?

Update with more:
This word game will end me.

My mouth keeps getting yesterdays lunch.
