Very short stories

Dec 1, 2017

I’ve been thinking lately about what kind of stories we like to hear or read or watch or listen to, relatively short stories in this particular case. Fairy tales came to mind. Memorable moments was another, the kind of story that almost has no plot, but just enough story to support and champion one great moment and makes you feel. Funny stories, like quick jokes. Homecomings. Expeditions. Summits. Parties. Holidays. Short timeframes, thin-but-rich plot lines. What are some of your favorites?

    Beautifully written stories about human life. It’s why I love teaching my Creative Nonfiction writing class so much. There’s an excellent online writing journal called “Brevity” that has good pieces. One of my short essays almost made it into their site once upon a time!
