According to urban myth that is the reply Ernest Hemingway gave when he was challenged to write a story in just six words.

400 billion stars feel so aloneraining on my parade no umbrellashe faked it never liked jazz

Once 2010 came to an end, they opened up the project to everybody on sixwordstoryeveryday.com.
