‘For sale: baby shoes never worn’-Ernest Hemingway

‘For sale: baby shoes never worn’ -Ernest Hemingway

Today, I came across this marvelous piece of literature during my perusal for mind boggling posts. It is believed to be created during a bet in a bar to tell a story in 6 words. Even though there is considerable confusion regarding the origin of the idea, I believe it was a showcase of his talent as a cunning storyteller by hinting a larger picture in very few words. We often say or write what comes to our mind. But, for an artist who settles for nothing less than perfect, this ability will be there in their spine.

I respect the real prodigies out there who dedicates themselves to their work. Also friends, write a micro-fiction or anything small, but try to be honest to yourself. Good luck to all
