During one of the Open Room sessions that Ogilvy organised, one of the speakers Arti left a great impression on me.
Basically, she mentioned that a good writer is one who communicates clearly. To cut to the chase, information is to short and sweet. Understood by everyone. She organised this activity by asking us to come out with a story with 6 words and cited an example from Ernest Hemingway: For sale: baby shoes, never worn.
We each came out with our own within a minute and mine was:
Alcoholic checks into rehab. Drank more.
After the whole session, I was on a roll. I kept coming up with 6 word stories, some which made sense and some which was totally nonsensical.
Anyway, here I am sharing the rest of my 6 word stories. It’s all said in jest, so please do not be offended. Not intended to anger anyone okay!!! DISCLAIMER OK!
