Day 6 Story - Creating a Short, Short Story

Today’s story (365 Stories in a year blog) is a very short vignette that can be used in a larger piece of writing.

This one is about my trip to Alaska many years ago and one of the quick funny comments my grandmother made on the trip.

You can use this kind of story to illustrate a point, draw a lesson, or simply add a bit of emotional content where needed.

Again, I used my tried and true method to come up with the story: sit down at the computer, ask my subconscious for story ideas and pick the next one that shows up.

As you can see, this story is less than 200 words yet it contains all of the story structure steps except the call to action, which would be provided by the context of the story.

That’s it for today.
