Six words no more he said

Robert Hruzek is running a Wired-inspired writing contest that I’ve agreed to help judge.

Alright, readers, let’s see how many budding writers there really are out there. Are you willing to take the challenge? If you had only six words to tell an entire story, what would you say? Take your time, but when finished submit them here via comments and they’ll be posted for all the world to see. (At least, for all who stop by the Zone, anyway. *Sigh* One day, the world.) Please bear in mind, this is a G-rated blog; I’ll delete inappropriate entries. (I have the POWER! Bwa-ha-ha-ha!)

The fun all starts on January 15th, so be sure to tune in to Middle Zone Musings in about a week and enter your hemingway (sorry, shameless neologism).

Oh, and btw, I am eminently bribable. New MacBooks and HK audio equipment are best.

The best one I can think up on the spur of about three moments?

Too fast. Overpass. Not passing over.

  • This contest reminds me of the Old Testament passage: “the more the words, the less the meaning, and how does that benefit anyone.”

    A little surprised your are bribable, but then I would roll over for a new MacBook too!

    Keep creating…it freaks people out,
