Six word novels.



How long does it take to write a six-word novel? (If you're Hemingway, probably a minute; me, longer.) My attempts, presented in chronological order. I think I improved.





Left me. Took wheelchair. Still crawling.
Bet the house, lost the showgirl.
Around his neck: Purple heart, noose.
Abandoned. Adopted. Abused. Pregnant. Scared. Repeat.

Weigh in. Share yours. Have fun.
