I heard of a challenge wherein one was to write a story in 100 words or less.
For example the ones attributed to Hemingway, but do we know for sure, the six word story.
Baby shoes for sale. Never worn.
Here is mine.
Title: The Name (94 words)
There once was a woman whose name no one knew but everyone recognized
Unloved she whispered. Unloved she said to the air around her and any who would listen.
People would try to catch her eye and smile yet she remained
behind the name.
Until, one day, as she watched the back of a would-be friend leaving
She called out:
Too late to return what had been freely given she turned to someone else:
She would try to catch someone else’s eye,
Loved, she asserted.
