So I read a Wired article about six word stories, the most famous of which was by Hemingway (For sale: baby shoes, never worn). There are dozens more by authors such as Alan Moore, Joss Whedon, Kevin Smith, Stan Lee, Frank Miller, etc.
Of course I'm no Hemingway but I decided to try my hand at some six word stories. It's much harder than it sounds, but it's also kind of addictive. Here is a few I came up with:
He plucks the strings. I sigh.
Futility: I repeat myself; nothing changes.
One thousand breaths, slowly pain subsides.
No calls. No messages. You're gone.
Four hundred beached whales at dawn.
