1). Consider the following questions about this tiny text (you don’t need to respond on the blog, but think about it!):
What does a story need in order to be a story?
What questions does this story leave you with?
What do you think is happening beneath the surface of these six words?
Is the amount of what’s left unsaid unsettling? Interesting? Annoying?
2). Write your own super short fiction and post here by Sunday at 6pm.
a). Your piece should be no longer than 100 words. The topic or inspiration can be anything you like.
b). In addition, read all your classmates’ pieces and write a short response to ONE of them (2-4 sentences). Your response can address the above questions that you considered when reading Hemingway’s super short story. For example, what makes this a story? What questions are you left with? What is happening beneath the surface? Etc.
