WRITING CONTEST!!!
Jackson2014-08-28 20:32:37
Calling all writers, novelists, and poets!

I had a great idea for a contest today, and I know you all will like it! The idea is based off of Ernest Hemmingway's shortest story. It goes like this:

For Sale: Baby shoes, never worn.

Sad right?! Or is it?

Here's what you have to do. Pick one of the following shortest stories and expand on it. You
MUST include the original story in your story. So if I expanded on Hemmingway's story, I could write something like the following:

I as on my way to work when my phone rang. I answered to hear my wife giggling on the other side of the line. She squealed happily, "I'm pregnant!" I was so surprised and overjoyed, I had to stop the car. We spent the next 8 months picking out baby clothes and supplies. I remember her holding up a small pair of shoes, no bigger than the palm of my hand. After buying them, she tied the laces together and hung them around the rear view mirror in her car. She went into the hospital as her delivery date approached. The doctors informed that the baby was strong and healthy. She went into labor a few days later. 10 hours of labor later, out came my son. We noticed something was wrong as soon as he was completely out. His feet were GIGANTIC! My wife and I were so surprised. When she was released from the hospital, we looked at the small shoes hanging around the mirror. We had no use for them. I went online to ebay later that night and posted an auction titled, For Sale: Baby shoes, never worn.

Okay, sorry for that long thing, but you get the point. Here are the shortest stories:

"For Sale: Baby shoes, never worn."

"The last man on Earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock on the door..."

"When he awoke, the dinosaur was still there."
