I just found these and am really impressed by the ability of some people to tell a complete story in just six words. It's based on the unproved tale that Hemmingway was challenged to write a complete story in just six words. As the story goes, Hemmingway won with, "For sale: baby shoes, never used."
After reading quite a few of these, I wondered how we would fare at creating Tolkien-based, six word stories. I'll start. If you feel inspired, please join in. Quality is not nearly so important as sharing the attempt.
