For sale: baby shoes. Never worn.

The title of this post is a short story written by Ernest Hemingway. Those six words are the story in its entirety and it is rumored that Hemingway thought it was his best work.

How do you define a story?

By number of words?

Number of pages?


Plot structure?

Can I write a story in one sentence?

How about:

The devil made my heart, and ever since the day I was born, he's been trying to get it back.
