Ernest Hemingway, the famous novelist, was given a challenge to write a story in just six words. The result was:
‘For sale: baby shoes, never worn.’
Some of our first year students have tried their hand at writing their own six word stories. Here are some of the results:
Seven days of Easter made Ireland.
We lost friends; we won wars.
I wish I could run faster!
Run and save your good life!
History – a thing of the past.
Once a soldier; now a fighter.
And then he pulled the trigger . . .
Mam! Dad! Will I make it?
False start: too fast to win.
No more trees; no more money.
Relationship status changed: ‘married’ to ‘divorced’.
Sold your soul for the fame.
