Shortest Story Ever Told

Last Updated on

It was assumed that shortest story ever told was written by Ernest Hemingway when his buddies bet him that he cannot write story with only six words. Hemingway took piece of napkin and wrote: “For Sale, Baby Shoes, Never Worn.” However, this short story dates back to 1917 written by William R. Kane: “Little Shoes, Never Worn.” William wrote this story before Hemingway and it had only four words.
