Six Word Novel

At Six Word Memoirs they are currently running a competition to write a novel in six words. The competition is in honour of Ernest Hemingway’s birthday (July 21st) and the anniversary of his death (July 2nd), since literary legend has it that he was once challenged to write a novel in just six words. Hemingway’s response was a beaut, so it’s well worth following the link, settling down and investing the time to savour all six of the words he used.

Here’s my own, fairly flippant, contribution to the genre:

“Six words is too much” – Editor.
