Though just six words long, Ernest Hemingway's famous story packs a powerful punch:
FOR SALE: BABY SHOES, NEVER WORN.
Hemingway only tells us what can fit on a homemade yard sign, but bottled in these six words is a family, a loss, and a process of moving on. Impressive, eh? With a few carefully selected details, Hemingway unlocks the reader's imagination, the power of suggestion giving rise to a novel's worth of material.
