FOR SALE, BABY SHOES NEVER WORN." To remark on the spareness of Ernest Hemingway's prose style has become a sixth-form commonplace; but never was that style so spare as in this nugget, written to win a ten-dollar bet that he couldn't write a short story in just six words.


Following this concept write in SIX words something that describes your LIFE.

Below are some more examples of what is required for this contest.


Chainsmoking Scot, made living from death
Andrew McKie, Telegraph obituaries editor


Five novels; two kids; insufficient sex
Louise Doughty, novelist


Everyone who loved me is dead
Ellen Fanning



Fifteen years since last professional haircut
Dave Eggers, novelist


I like big butts; can't lie
Dave Russ



They attacked, we survived; let's eat

Have fun and Happy writing!
