"I tend to have the ending in mind but always start at the beginning. The most difficult part, for me, is I sometimes get so excited and anxious, I want to get to my favorite parts and of course this cannot happen without the rest of the tale."

"I love very short fiction and this is great! My daughter who is ten (and usually far more cheery) wrote this when we played 6 word stories and I've never topped it: Happy ever after hardly ever happens."

The Power of the Short Story

I thought I'd share an anecdote I just heard.  Hemingway, in an apparent effort to point out the potential impact of a short story, penned this 6-word stunner: "For sale.  Baby Shoes.  Never worn."
