As you might have read if you followed the above link, this PROMPT’s challenge is to tell a whole story in 25 words or less as inspired by the six-word “novel” attributed to Ernest Hemingway, which was brilliantly written as: “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”
So to recap:
Please tell a story in 25 words or less.
I know you can do it.
Where are you going? he asked.
I shut the door and adjusted the exhaust hose.
Nowhere, I mouthed through the closed window.
I know, I know. I’m a maudlin sort.
As for you: Please post your response in the comments or write about it on your blog and leave me the link.
(P.S. If I had all my dreams come true, Mo would come back for this one. He’s a genius storyteller, that one.)
