The Novel

“I’m writing a novel.”

“What’s it about?”

“Everything!”

“Must be pretty long, then.”

“Not particularly, no.  Actually, it’s probably going to be very short.”

“Then why aren’t you done yet?”

“It’s hard.”

“Ha!  What’s so hard about writing a short novel?”

“Well, you try writing a short novel about Everything!”

He didn’t expect it to fit within a fifty word story, though.
