Even if we couldn't win, the waiting, the wishing, and the feeling is somewhat exciting and worth to experience. I learnt this from Leet.
So here it is....
Smithmag has team up with Twitter and set up something juicy.
They're waiting for short story comprising 6 words.
Yes SIX words only, so don't waste your fingers energy.
If they find your words top all the contestants' words, then wash your hands, clean your ears, and prepare yourself for a new iPod !
Here's the email I received from Twitter this morning:

ABOUT THE SIX-WORD MEMOIR CHALLENGE
Legend has it that Ernest Hemingway was once challenged to write a
story in six words. The result was "For sale: baby shoes, never
used." More recently, Wired Magazine revived the challenge and
author Margaret Atwood came up with this short but funny beauty:
"Longed for him. Got him. Shit."
We realize November is National Novel Writing Month but 50,000
words in 30 days? That seems heavy considering genius may surface
in just six words. The folks over at Smith Magazine think everyone
has a story and they want to reward you for yours.
