Can you tell a story in six words?

October 26th, 2006

Via Boing Boing (and many others) is this brilliant project from Wired magazine. Ask a bunch of famous writers to tell a story in six words:

  • Gown removed carelessly. Head, less so. (Joss Wheedon)
  • Machine. Unexpectedly, I’d invented a time (Alan Moore)
  • Kirby had never eaten toes before (Kevin Smith)

Awesome stuff! (Although that last one is more like the first sentence of a short story I’d really like to read…)
