To settle a bar bet, Hemingway wrote the following short story. For Sale: Baby shoes. Never worn. He called it his best work. And it proves that you don’t have to blather on endlessly to write something powerful.
It is the inspiration for our June exercise. But we’ve decided to go easy on you. We’re happy to settle for not six, but 150 words.
Here’s the challenge.
Write a 150 word short story that contains the following words: car guard; lover; and shoe.
Best story stands in line to win its author a R200 book voucher from the independent bookshop of your choice. Your deadline is July 7, at 12 noon. Send your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org.
