How short can a story get?

Ploughing through a doorstop of a book could yield a certain sense of enjoyment. But the brevity of short stories are a delight. It’s like watching a 5 second sketch instead of a 2 hour play.

Came across this New York Times collection of Six-Word Love Stories. That’s right. Only six words. It doesn’t get any shorter than this.

Here’s a pick of some of the readers’ entries:

“ Mistook love for seizure at first.”

“ Met in leftist group; felt right.”

“Marry me?” “No.” Happy ever after.

“ Dog approves; maybe this guy’s good?”
