Lady G writes: Can you write a story using only six words? There is a site that invites you to do just that. I have tried to come up with one, but no luck as yet. Give it a try. Check out the ‘short stories’ section on

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’ve asked sci-fi, fantasy, and horror writers from the realms of books, TV, movies, and games to take a shot at the six-word story, themselves. Some examples of stories submitted:

Failed SAT. Lost scholarship. Invented rocket.

- William Shatner

Computer, did we bring batteries? Computer?

- Eileen Gunn

Vacuum collision. Orbits diverge. Farewell, love.

- David Brin

Gown removed carelessly. Head, less so.

- Joss Whedon

Automobile warranty expires. So does engine.

- Stan Lee
