Ernest Hemingway once won a bet by crafting a six-word short story, that can make people cry. Here it is.
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why Hemingway is one of (if not THE) most powerful authors I’ve ever studied.
I remember this.
I don’t get it….oh….OH.
My English teacher had us write 6-word short stories using this beautiful piece of writing as a template.
Mine was: “He hanged from his boyfriend’s belt.”
Is it bad that she cried?
Our focus is Hemingway.

Hi, I'm Sydney, I'm SIXTEEN, I live in California, and some of you may know me as Lily. I have Osteogenesis Imperfecta type 1 and I crochet (and maybe have a teensy tiny obsession with marine life). I reblog a lot of Doctor Who, Sherlock, Harry Potter, Supernatural, Homestuck, and whatever comes up on my dash. I welcome friendly asks, but if you're looking to get off on talking about my socks, get out.
