In A Few Words

Yesterday’s assignment involved playing with word counts. We were tasked with challenging ourselves by writing a much longer or shorter piece than we normally do. I’ve already written posts of various lengths, so for this one, I thought I’d go with something completely different.

Legend has it that Ernest Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in just six words. He accepted the challenge and came up with this:

While the truth behind that story is up for debate, it’s an interesting exercise. Evoke an emotion in just six words. So here we go:

World ends tomorrow. Tonight, we dance.
