Got a second? I’d like you to read a short story of 8 words I found in the obituary section of a newspaper. I gave it a title of:
Obituary: In paper on Jan. 7, 2012
“Married 73 years, couple dies 4 hours apart.”
Stories are everywhere. What is not said in this one is as important as what is said. Hemingway once said that it’s not what you put into a story that is important. It’s what you take out.
Who knows? Maybe the next short article or email you recieve will be nominated for a Noble Prize in Literarure. Be alert!
