Who's Up for a Creativity Exercise?

It’s time to kick up some fun during these crazy COVID times with a creativity exercise - a Super Simple Short Story challenge. We took inspiration from the legend of Ernest Hemingway’s six-word story, ‘Baby shoes for sale, never worn.”


We asked how might we ramp up Ernest’s idea. So we replaced the “word” with a super simple stick-man scribble. To add to the fun, we invited our clients from government, education, healthcare, and business to create their own. What a hoot and a holler!! People loved it!


Check out one example.
