Video: People at NerdCon tell us their stories – in just 6 words

We asked people at NerdCon to share their six-word stories.

The second annual NerdCon: Stories is going on at the Minneapolis Convention Center this Friday and Saturday.

It's a convention for story-lovers. And this year, it features 60 special guests including authors, actors, artists, podcasters, screenwriters, game designers, and more.

For example, John Green (The Fault in Our Stars) and Wisconsin's own Patrick Rothfuss (The Wise Man's Fear) will be there.

So GoMN went to talk to some of the self-professed nerds – some of which traveled across the country to attend – on Friday to get their own, personal stories.

But there's a twist: the stories could only be six words.

It's inspired by Ernest Hemingway's famous six-word story that read: "For sale: baby shoes, never worn."
