Writing Exercise to Challenge Your Brain
"For sale: baby shoes, never used."
Wow, right? Six words was all he needed to paint a very powerful picture! So, I thought I would try this exercise and man, oh man, is it ever difficult. Sheesh! Tell a story in six words? Oy vey!
I finally wrote something that I was satisfied with. But, it's 7 words. I wonder what Papa Hemingway would say? But for what it's worth, here's what I came up with:
Bankrupted woman seeks employment at gun factory.
What do you think of my 7-word story?
Try it! It's very challenging...but it will give your brain a great workout. I truly believe that less is more. And I would love to hear what you come up with.
