Re: 3 Word Story

No, no, no. If you're going to write a story, follow punctuation rules! Post #6 ended a sentence. See the period?

Post #6: my famous tattoo.

The next posting should have started a new sentence.

Post #7: of my boat

Can't do three . . .

even Hemingway took six to win his bet: "For sale. Baby shoes. Never worn."

Absolutely right. My post #6 was intentionally ending a sentence. I think someone should do this from time to time if this is going to read like anything but the final ravings of a politician at the end.

And three words should be plenty.

You can cope.
Try it out.
See for yourself.

And Hemmingway became a hopeless alky with a liver that was attracting attention through his clothing, before he blew his own brains out.

He craved six. Three times two. Too many words. Too much stress. Adios, my patron.
