True short stories can be awesome to read and they can be boring to read. The difference is clear, and you need to make your ones in the first category. You need to make them powerful ones. But how do you write a powerful true short story? I seem to be doing it a lot these days.
But I stand firm: writing a short story is an art. In fact, just use the opposites. You have to work with limited everything. Limited time frame, limited word count, limited character or plot development, and a big don’t of writing a short story is to write every scene. By every scene I mean that all the scenes which occur in your story. Why is this a bad idea, you ask? Well, apart from boring readers, you also need to consider your word count.
If you write every scene, then not only your writing will not be concise, but it will also be extremely boring to read. In a short story, it’s a strict don’t, unless you don’t have any transitory scenes and have very short main ones. And the thing which goes without saying is that you should have perfect story elements in order to write the perfect story. That is to say, your plot, character, writing voice, setting, theme all must be perfect. If they aren’t, make them be.
Now we know how a perfect short story is. Let’s see a story on true short stories, and how to make them truly powerful and have an impact on your reader. True Short Stories I have one really embarrassing story to relate. When I was a bit younger, I used to read lots and lots of short stories and I loved them.
But one day what happened was that a friend narrated to me a story, and then said it really happened. Definitely happened, it was definitely true. I replied to him in a scornful tone. I came to know that there can be true short stories.
I also felt really guilty for not believing my friend earlier. So I decided to actually read some true short stories, and I found few of them. After reading, however, I was disappointed, simply because they weren’t written well. Why should I want to find out what happened on some person’s journey? And I closed the true short stories, and went back to my trusty novels.
