WordPress Topic of the Day

Topic #227:

Hemingway once wrote a super short story: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

What story can you write in six words?


I generally don’t post anything in response to these daily prompts.  But Hemingway’s six word story really inspired me. 

Cat: Rescued, secure, purring, sleeping soundly.

Dan home from college.  Laundry everywhere.

Silent sickness. Some never understand it.

Mothers.  Always there, then they’re gone.
