    I’ve had a go at this. Ernest Hemingway is often attributed the concept of a story told in six words but his story, about ‘child’s shoes, almost new, for sale’ but some literary detective traced that story to a newspaper in the first decade of the 20th century. Still, the point remains the same, the essentials of a story can be shrunk to six words, at a stretch.
