We'll be brief: Hemingway once wrote a story in just six words ("For sale: baby shoes, never worn.") and is said to have called it his best work. So we asked sci-fi, fantasy, and horror writers from the realms of books, TV, movies, and games to take a shot themselves. @ http://wired.com/wired/archive/14.11/sixwords.html

Want to take up the challenge? Post or link your stories here. "Forums are not to be used to post stories." If asked, deny it's a story :-P Have fun.

- Horror Writer Commits Suicide. Murders Cease.

- Earth blows up. No one cares.

-I save life, mine is destroyed.

-I pronounce love, relationship is ended.

-Bomb hits house, insurence doesn't pay.

-Fight breaks out, man is paralised.

Writers' block. Now a dead writer.

Four insane men talk over coffee.

The sweater fits. I hate it.

The ferret dies on a Tuesday.

I live for dreams no longer.

"Honey, put the new plane down!"

They watched it bleed to black.

He departated, now unafraid of salvation.

With tears of joy, she cried.

She was thought 'winner', but wrong.

Angels, they wait; beyond the grave.

There is cheese; the mice rejoice.

Writer too perfect; need more typo.

Too much manga. Too much fanservice.

"Trust me. He ate them raw."

He wished for peace. Everyone died.

She screamed. He smiled. Nobody heard.

If I'm lying, may God strike

They rarely killed for pleasure anymore.

I've been inspired by this contest. Now I'm working on writing fifty six-word stories and collecting them in one document. Look for it later tonight or tomorrow.

Just posted it, but the link seems to be broken right now. I'll check it tomorrow to see if it works. It should be in the Horror section, titled "Watch Them Flicker." Thanks in advance to anyone that will read this.

Strangler? On, right! He's here. Meatloaf?

That's good. XD

The bird forgot the opaque window.

Fire. You. Our hands never reach.

Faceless, famous, friendless, falling, for-never.

A dancers dream, a crippling accident.

And I don't think this counts, but it's an idea I like . . .

She

(bride of twenty-three years, careworn, forgotton)

Told

(Screamed, dropped her dishes she washed)

Him

(coming home from more dirty escipades)

"I

(Dreams and flight, forgone for this?)

Hate

(Loath, cannot discribe, cannot live like -)

You."

(Yet she was not young again.)

This is fun! ^___^

Interesting variation. I may have to try it later.

Hmm. Cool idea. I'll try it.

I feel so very important, today.

He loves her. Or does he?

My dog sits on the rug.

Dust. Vaccuum cleaner. No more dust.

Not very creative, but I tried!

You eat dead autotrophic matter? Eww.

Surreal: losing arguments with a shoe.

Unreal: provoked shoe injures emo guitarist.

Too real: shoe obsession among females.

Light particle condensation: walking on sunshine.

Solution to Global Warming: Nuclear Winter.

Well, good thing it was non-toxic.

Felt the bullet. Silent the shot.

Lets fly, just mind the gravity.

Not deaf, I just don't listen.

Warm and bright when burning alive.

Cold and dark when buried alive.

Burn those bridges to stay warm.

Broken window; broken heart; broken neck.

But surely you noticed the dragon?
