Ernest Hemingway was a famed short story writer. I learned from my research that while with some friends in a bar he wagered that whoever could write the best short story would get $10 from each friend. So, Ernest wrote the famed "For sale, baby shoes never worn" and collected on the money from his friends. This is a very famous short story because it inspired a writing style called flash fiction. I also found out that Ernest served in both World Wars, and died in 1961 to suicide.
