Recently, it’s come to my attention there is a little confusion about what constitutes a story for this challenge. I attempted to clarify during the event, but did not make myself very clear. With this in mind, I want to clear up any uncertainty.
My first stop was Merriam-Webster’s Online Dictionary. This is what I found:
Story (noun) – 1) an account of incidents or events 2a) a fictional account shorter than a novel
So, that sums up nicely the way I define a story. A short story is going to be something you create as a storyteller. It might be a slice of daily life, or it might be a complex take down of the covert dark government on a world far from home, or it might just be how the toes got polished different colors. It’s your story. Tell it how you want in the world you chose. Develop the plot, or write by the seat of your pants.
As long as you create your story between 1000 words and 15000 words you’re creating what qualifies for the 31 Short Stories Challenge.
As long as there are storytellers, there will always be stories. You who are reading this are a storyteller. You got this.
Pride is a variety streamer who tends to do more demystifying and education about their animal companions than actual writing most times. They take great enjoyment in writing for the pleasure of it and often tend to pursue stories and adventures that are fantastical or magical in nature. While they don’t have anything available in print just yet, they’re working hard on making serial stories available soon!
What do you stream? I stream mostly games, sometimes animals, and of course writing. My favorite genres are anything that loosely encompasses Fantastical settings and usually a lot of mythology and magic.
How long have you been streaming? Several years off and on
How do you keep your viewers engaged? I ask chat for their opinions on what to explore next, or how their own writing progress is going.
