What exactly is a Short Story? Aside from being a lovely piece for violin and piano composed by George Gershwin in 1927, there is no precise definition. It is literary art and you will know it when you see it. The "short" part is easy. It's short. One page? Five? Twenty? Don't worry about it. Plot? Rising action? Dialogue? Maybe, maybe not. But don't let that stuff get in the way of your enjoyment of the yarn.
