Hemingway Lives on! Let us create 10 words or fewer.  December 14, 2011 - December 31, 2011

Reading and Deliberating


Hemingway wrote one of the most interesting and thought-provoking short stories in 6 words, as we all know so well! I want to find someone out there who can completely baffle me, or make me cry, or just twirl my mind into a knot, with only 10 words or fewer.

Think you're up for it? Let us join Hemingway, and explain entire lives and memories in the most simplistic and provocative form.

Ready, set, go.

If I can get all submissions before New Year's, that would make my life! Then I'll award the most thought-provoking and mind-baffling writers!

Here's one I thought of, just to poke some creativity:
"I wish only to see the world without ambivalent eyes."

Best of luck to all the great writers!


My heart. My mind. My utter respect.


The most thought-provoking/heart-wrenching story. The most thought-provoking/heart-wrenching story.
Twirled my mind into a little knot! Twirled my mind into a little knot!
Kept me up all night in thought. Kept me up all night in thought.
Made me wonder, and wonder. Made me wonder, and wonder.
A beautiful work! A beautiful work!
Very well done! Very well done!
