Writing Short

The shortest story ever written is credited to Ernest Hemingway and goes, “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

I found the “True Stories Well Told” equivalent in the classified section of the Ironwood Daily Globe on March 3rd. Ironwood is located a few miles south of the Lake Superior shore on the Michigan-Wisconsin state line. Situated as it is just above the 45th parallel, winters can be cold, dark and long. Hence the inspiration, I think, for the following prose:

TRANSPORTATION WANTED: Las Vegas, Share a ride & gas, one way. Early April. Jim...

I hope Jim finds his ride. Me, I’m happy to occasionally get away to the region he hopes to get away from.
