Today’s post will revolve around stories in a general sense. What makes something a story? It it the plot? The characters? The development of characters? The setting? The beginning, middle, or end? I don’t possess the answer; I’m sure no person does.
What I do know, though, is that a story usually houses a combination of the many items listed. In my opinion, genre does not matter when it comes to the many details being incorporated in a story. For romance, characters could develop by turning from a bully into a gentle-hearted lover. For science-fiction, the setting could originate on a planet, and expand to another. For horror, very subtle foreshadowing can exist, which could count as the following: a small detail in the description of a character or setting; a sentence someone says; the events of a dream.
Quick message from our sponsor: “When somebody asks me what I really love to do I can answer that I love to create. I love the feeling when I make something with my own hands that have their own purpose. I hold a Masters in Architecture and I really like to make art in my free time and I am working as a graphic designer. If you are interested to make something for you I promise that I will enjoy and be creative 100% for your project.” Emily’s World of Design is a very reliable and fun company.

When it comes to the length of a story, it is left decided by the author. Some stories possess better flow as short stories, while others work well as novels. Most of my stories are short, but all but one have a complete ending.
When it comes to actually writing the story, I’m still procrastinating, and I’m always angry at myself after. It’s completely my fault, and I just need to change my ways for the better. As I was actually able to gain more interested readers in the past month, I need to be more efficient with the electronic wording being placed on the computer’s Word device.
Be safe out there, and remember: not everything is what it seems.
