Hint Fiction is a story of 25 words or less that suggests a larger, more complex story. Legend has it that someone asked Ernest Hemingway to write a story in 6 words or less, and that he wrote this:

Powerful, huh? And amazing, that an entire story can be conveyed in just a few words. I was nervous about the challenge and really thought I wouldn't come up with anything. But surprisingly, I came up with a few. And surprisingly, this was a ton of fun.
Here's a sampling of what I came up with. What do you think?
Wanted: Husband. Males need not apply.
Burying bodies is hard work.
Pope agrees: Bible is a lie.
I let my twin marry her.
Dumped via ad in school newspaper.
Farted first day of class. Great.
Positive pregnancy test. Never had sex.
Birth certificate confirms: I’m not theirs.
Man kills family. Unborn son survives.
Avalanche buries White House. All dead.
House for sale. All ghosts included.
Prom queen results: Mark Jameson wins.
