"For sale: baby shoes, never worn."
-Ernest Hemingway

About the ContestErnest Hemingway was bet by his friends that he could not write a six word story.  This is what he came up with.  He was paid by his friends $10, we are offering SO MUCH MORE!

We judges are challenging you all to come up with a six word story as well, but since you wil be getting a lot more than Hemingway did, we also ask that you illustrate the story as well some how.

Now, these illustrations can be anything.  They can be photographs, vectors, paintings, sculptures, you name it.  There cannot be any extra words of any sort in the illustration itself unless they are the words of the story.  There must only be on illustration.

This is the perfect chance for you guys to show off your skills across different mediums.

How to DeviateThe contest entries should be submitted under literature.  You should click the "Add Text" button to put the six word story in.  For the illustration, once you have added the story a preview option shows up.  That is how you should put in the illustration, not in a separate deviation because this is supposed to be one complete work of art.  Make sure you note at least one of the judges, mode-de-vie and Death-By-Romance, a link to the deviation.  Please do not leave a comment with a link on our page or in the News article.

!Caution!  Many famous writers and other celebrities have tried to write these stories but most of the time they forget that it is supposed to be... well... a story.  Not everything has to be explicitly said in the story, and it might be interpreted in many different ways.  I interpret Hemingway's as a woman had a still born child therefore they sold the shoes.  It could be taken many different ways, but that is a full story, not just a simple statement.
!Caution!
