Six Word Story.
« on: May 14, 2013, 11:20:40 AM »
Not to be confused with Daniel's "Five Word Screenplay". The challenge here, as Ernest Hemingway first accomplished, is to try and tell a complete story in six words. For example, this was Hemingway's, "For sale: baby shoes, never worn." Let's see what kinds you guys can come up with. =)

Child missing. Female, eleven. June 1997.
In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king.

Good challenge, this will take some practice.

"She waved goodbye, as the ship....  Damn ran out of words.

Or,

He swallowed the pills, just as... Again too long

Ok, last go

He read the test results, sighed.

Actually if you follow Reef's form then you can churn them out.

He woke from the dream, relieved.

She looked at the stain, cried.

He closed the fridge door, burped.

etc.
