What is the shortest novel by Ernest Hemingway
About short stories and rain clouds
Probably the shortest short story in the world comes from the short story master Ernest Hemingway:
For sale: baby shoes, never worn.
And story-writing this week at the University of Rijeka. I gave a creative writing workshop there.
But first of all, I asked myself whether I would even meet students:
Orphaned hallways due to Covid ...
In the classroom, however, four German students were waiting for me, to whom I spent two hours using terms like plot, Main character or Setting mumbled through my mask. You kindly did not chase me away, but listened carefully.
And also get homework: namely to write a short story by the time we see you again in November - longer than Hemingway, but no longer than five pages.
Fittingly, the sky outside the window showed very clearly what every story basically needs - some kind of conflict.
In that case: will the blue sky be able to hold its own against the rain cloud?
Irish writer John Banville once put it quite nicely:
In a novel there is always a character who looks at the stars and kicks dog shit in the process.
