Came across this really cool post about Steve Jones, a teacher at the North Carolina School of Science and Math, and his assignment to his students.
The assignment: to write a compelling, six-word story. As the legend goes, Ernest Hemingway once did this—some say he wrote it to settle a tab, while others think it was a bet. His story: “For sale: baby shoes, never used.” He claims it was the best writing of his life.
