A little Hemingway...

As a writer I often look to the greats for inspiration and this is a story that has always stuck with me.

While lunching with friends the great Ernest Hemingway bets his companions $10 each that he can craft an entire story in just 6 words. His friends jumped on the opportunity knowing Hemingway has set himself a seemingly impossible task.

This is what he came up with...

Obviously he won the bet. And his friends learned to never underestimate a great writer.

Ah the power of words...sometimes so few can say so much.
