Rosen Trevithick (rosentrevithick) | 2273 comments Caroline, wow - that just goes to show how powerful six words can be.

Hope that makes sense. I've been doing five-word stories for a while at my blog fivewordstories. The idea was to take the famous Hemmingway model and whittle it down even more. Haven't updated it recently though.
