Six-word story


War Hero
Book Reviewer
There is a legend that Ernest Hemingway was once challenged to compose a six-word story. The result?

"For sale: Baby shoes. Never used."

Anyone care to accept and continue the challenge?

My effort:

"...and just like that - it started!"
Seem to remember some writer was doing the grand tour when his latest tome was published, eager to know how well it was doing he apparently wrote the shortest letter ever known, the reply he received was just as short.

Enquiry read ?
