Stories in Three Lines, v. 2

(Three-line Summaries with Links to Their Original Forms)

Inspired by Félix Fénéon’s Novels in Three Lines. Below, two stories, a novel and a collection of rejection letters are discovered, digested and summarized, all within three lines.

The prisoner had been imprisoned for ripping a poster — “accidentally,” he claimed.

It was like the two of them were trying to make a snowman without enough snow.
