Short Stories: Five Six-Word Novels

My Dear Reader,

There are those who have said that my posts are too long; especially my Fiction Friday pieces. So, in order to drastically reduce the average length of my blog entries,* I will instead write you some
six-word novels, a genre developed by Ernest Hemingway. Feel free to add your own (or title mine) in the comments.

Novel #1: I won. He lost. And died.

Novel #2 (or: Gone with the Wind): Two selfish people--one stupid movie.

Novel #3: He drank; she screamed. He stopped.

Novel #4: One man, one sacrifice. Mankind redeemed.

Novel #5: She's going to Paris; I'm unemployed.


Regards, best wishes, and brevity,

-Cecily Jane

* And yes, I'm being sarcastic.
