Wikipedia definition
2. Short storyA short story is a work of fiction that is usually written in prose, often in narrative format. A short story usually deals with a few characters and often concentrates on the creation of the mood rather than the plot. The short story format tends to be more pointed than longer works of fiction, such as novellas (in the 20th and 21st century sense) and novels.
