Tonight I am uninspired. I have just written a long blog post about something I care deeply about, and now I'm all out of pretty words.

It's odd though, the power of words. You can make someone cry or laugh just with letters on a page. I'm sure you know that 'shortest story ever' Hemingway anecdote - "For sale: baby shoes, never worn." Six words! But what wealth they contain! A whole world within them!

Unsurprisingly, there is a website inspired by it - sixwordstories.net. Perhaps I should write over there instead.

But I would suck at six word stories, really.
