Your inspiration this week is write a piece of microprose called a six word story. The six word story has been famously credited to Ernest Hemingway, who won a $10.00 bet for writing:

“For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

This story is complete and completely heart breaking! Interestingly the claim that Hemingway wrote this has never been substantiated.  Can you write a piece that moves the heart in only six words?
